From a vineyard of just 1 hectare, this is lively and ripe with a bit o fat to it but also a mineral freshness from the limestone/clay soil in which the vines have been growing for over 25 years.
Francoise Feuillat-Juillot is the daughter of the highly regarded Mercurey producer, Michel Juillot. She grew up amongst the vines and barrels of her family domaine, before studying in Paris and completing a degree in oenology at Dijon University. She now has 14 hectares of wonderfully sited, mainly old vines, spread amongst 13 different premier crus in the viticultural amphitheatre that is Montagny. She practices a very strict and meticulous form of sustainable "lutte raisonee", works the soils mechanically and all grapes are picked by hand.
