Domaine Arnaud Baillot Montagny Premier Cru Vieilles Vignes 2019 (Burgundy, France) "...floral, apple, citrus..."
Arnaud Baillot is located in Beaune, the heart of the Côte d’Or. Owner and winemaker, Arnaud Baillot, now presents his fourth vintage of limited edition Burgundy crus.
Passionate about the diversity of wines the Burgundy region has to offer, Arnaud has teamed up with his wife Laure (grandaughter of Domaine Hudelot-Noëllat in Chambolle-Musigny) to produce a spectacular range of villages and crus Burgundy wines. Arnaud has been hands-on all along the way, selecting the origin of the grapes, overviewing the winemaking process, choosing the type of barrels and ageing time for each individual wine. In 2017, Arnaud and Laure acquired a small vineyard in Côte de Beaune, making their first step in having their own Estate produced wines at Domaine Arnaud Baillot. Their philosophy is to respect and promote the complexity of the Burgundy wine region while producing terroir driven wines.
"...the 2019 vintage has hit the bullseye. Almost every winemaker I spoke with talked about the vintage’s rare combination of excellence and great consistency." - Stuart Pigott, Senior Editor, jamessuckling.com
"The Montagny is interesting, with a nose of the burned/smoky fragrance of crushed stones. Rich mid-palate fruit completes and supports the stony mineral impression. The oak from Chassin and Francois Freres provides an excellent backbone." - Steen Ohman, winehog.org
