  • The appellation of Montagny lies approximately 30 kilometres south of Beaune in the rolling folds and hills of the southern part of the Côte Chalonnaise. Montagny is a 100% white wine appellation originating solely from Chardonnay grapes and giving a fresh white wine that is an uncomplicated representation of its parent grape variety. Louis Latour selects only those wines from grapes with a high natural sugar content which constitutes the most reliable indicator of maturity, and therefore quality. Once purchased, the wine is nurtured by the cellarmen at Maison Louis Latour who carefully rack the young Montagny off its lees in the days before bottling.

Press review
    • Montagny "Les Buys" 2018 - Wine Enthusiast - January 2020 - 88/100A shy nose on this wine gives just a few glimpses of nutty oak. The palate is a picture of flow and ease, with ripe and easy Mirabelle fruit. It offers flow and fruit rather than texture but all is harmonious, bright and rounded.
