This is a great example of a very good Chardonay from the sub-region of Côte Chalonnaise, in Burgundy, France. The Chardonays of this region tend to be very different from the well known region of Chablis, in the north of Burgundy. In Chablis the grapes are cultivated in a more cold climate, and it is very high region, which provide a great acidity and freshness to the wine. In Côte Chalonnaise, the climate is a litte more hot. So the wines produced in this region use to be more thick and dense, when compared to the Chablis ones. The flavours of Côte Chalonnaise are also different. They are not so fruity and fresh, but they have a very good taste of dry fruits, such as nuits and hazelnuts. The aroma also bring some smell of white flowers.

La Buxynoise Montagny 1er Cru Cuvée Spéciale blanc 2005

This Chardonay from Côte Chalonnaise, produced by Cave des Vignerons de Buxy, from the city of Montagny, is a very special one. Very nice to pair with robust fishes, and, specially with pork loin. It has aromas fo white flowers and also mint. In the mouth it is very persistent. The final brings a remembrance of the nuits.
