Chateau de Chamilly Montagny Les Bassets 2020
Montagny is a white wine appellation in the Côte Chalonnaise producing some of the best Chardonnay wines in all of the region. This Chardonnay from Château de Chamilly is an excellent example of what the wines here can achieve in terms of quality and value. Les Bassets pours a mid lemon with reflective gold highlights. On the nose, sumptuous aromas of golden delicious apple, pear and cantaloupe mingle with subtle notes of vanilla bean. In the mouth, the wine explodes with freshness and verve, sending a welcome jolt of acidity and chalky minerality across the palate. The wine is perfectly balanced with just the right amount of fruit, acid and body to compliment each other in a seamless whole. The finish is long and refreshing with an added complexity of ripe citrus notes of tangerine and kumquat. In terms of food pairings, the possibilities are almost endless.You can enjoy the Château de Chamilly as an apertif, but also with a range of dishes from a classic roast chicken to lobster risotto to braised cauliflower.
