"Pale lemon-yellow in colour, a bright, clean nose, a zingy palate reminiscent of lime-zest and oyster shell and just a hint of ginger and white pepper from the yeast lees."

The estate was created by members of the Montanet family and their friends who were willing to embark on this venture. They cleared the land and replanted the slopes with 12.5 hectares of vines between 1987 and 1997. Some of the plots of land used to belong to Catherine Montanet’s family. 18 plots of land spread more or less evenly over the four rural districts which carry the Vézelay appellation: Asquins, Saint-Père, Tharoiseau and Vézelay. The vines are 20 years old on average. The geology here is quite unusual as while the granite Morvan massif was coming into being it forced limestone strata up to the surface. Most of the vineyards are located on the most ancient strata, the Bajocian, or upper and lower Bathonian limestone and others on Liassic marlstone. The intention is to make honest and authentic wines which reflect the distinctive character of their region and the climate of a particular year. The Montanets do not resort to so-called “modern” artificial means in their
wine making process in order to achieve this goal. Naturally enough, they hand-pick their grapes and the wine is produced using traditional skills.
