Faiveley Montagny ‘les jones’ 2000 review

85 points

Burgundy, France. 13%

A reasonably priced white burgundy, especially given that it was bought off retail shelves at nearly 6 years of age.

Quite strongly flavoured in a dry austere style with a surprising amount of French oak. I think with time this will fatten a tad, and the oak will subside. Like a minor claret, this is an interesting savoury wine that will age but doesn’t have tightly concentrated flavours that will build complexity with age.

An interesting contrast to New World chardonnay.
