Domaine Stéphane Aladame Montagny 1er Cru Les Maroques 2020

Despite the fact that the name 'Les Maroques' is derived from the ancient French 'marais', which means 'swamp', this east facing single parcel of Montagny 1er Cru is situated at 300 to 330 metres altitude. The vines are aged between 20 and 58 years old and are planted on well-hydrated clay-limestone soils, resulting in wines characterised by a marked minerality. The 3.5 hectares plot has been farmed organically since the early 2000s. Made from 100% Chardonnay the fruit was hand picked, whole bunch pressed, and the must was allowed to settle before fermentation with indigenous yeasts took place in 100% old French oak barrels. The must underwent full malolactic fermentation and the wine was matured for 12 months before bottling. Stéphane Aladame's 'Les Maroques' Montagny 1er Cru reveals pure and refined hints of fresh white peach, together with delicate floral and citrus notes. On the palate, this medium-bodied wine has a delicate structure with marked mineral undertones and a lingering finish.
