Domaine Feuillat-Juillot Montagny Blanc, 1er Cru Grappes D’Or 2021

Last year I discovered another fantastic secret wine in Burgundy, from Côte Chalonnaise; Between the Côte de Beaune to the north and the hills of the Mâconnais to the south, the Côte Chalonnaise is consistently producing brilliant wines at more sensible prices. 

The wine delivers brilliantly on intensity and quality.  Immensely pleasing for friends and guests, this drinks like a much more expensive wine from a grander AOC to the north. Maybe not quite every evening deluxe, but perfect for a special Saturday lunch or Friday evening with friends. This wine should be always in your cellar/ under the stairs!

Jancis Robinson agrees with me, and in early January 2022, wrote about the Domaine in the FT on an article about brilliant Côte Chalonnaise wines at great prices:

“When I visited the region in September I was particularly taken by the single-vineyard Chardonnays of Domaine Feuillat-Juillot made by an all-female team. The great majority of grapes grown in Montagny’s pretty, east-facing amphitheatre go to the large co-op in nearby Buxy but Françoise Feuillat-Juillot, who grew up on the famous Mercurey domaine Michel Juillot, has grown her own domaine from eight to 15 ha (37 acres), replacing red wine vines with Chardonnay, and bottles everything herself with her daughter Camille.”
