Maison Joseph Faiveley, one of Burgundy’s venerable negociants, has practically reinvented itself over the past few years and it shows in the wines. This Montagny comes exclusively from their vineyards--hence the Domaine rather than the Maison Faiveley labeling--and proves that Chardonnay does well in Montagny, an off the beaten track village in the Cte Chalonnaise south of the famous Cte dOr. The stoniness of the Cte Chalonnaise comes through but Faiveley has managed to combine it with a subtle herbal--almost minty--element and a laser-like precision. It has an uncommon elegance for wines from this appellation.
