Faiveley Montagny 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Nutty oak, apple fruit and a touch of mango come together on the nose with some sharp mineral hints that add nice focus. Very poised up front, a wave of sweetness from the nutty oak adds volume in the mouth. This has a light caramel/toffee edge to it that many people will find mysteriously appealing. The core of fruit, apple and quince is rich and attractively pure. This finishes with good inner mouth perfumes, apple skins and fresh evergreen notes that add to the fruit and mineral interplay. A lovely white Burgundy from a lesser known appellation. 89pts

Popcorn, green apple and honey on the nose. Cream and caramel, mostly due to the oak. It's nice a smooth with a creamy finish.

Bright, tart, flowery, a little biscuity. In this instance, the flavors match well together and settle pretty well on the palate. Probably great with a winter fish stew.
