Professional Wine Reviews for Faiveley Montagny 2014

Inviting aromas of white flowers and spices, with just a hint of apple. Supple and vinous, offering a tactile texture for this wine from 30-year-old vines planted on white marl soil that's similar in composition to that of Corton-Charlemagne. Finishes saline and firm. Allen Meadows reports on the 2014 vintage from Faiveley: "Last year just after the harvest Erwan Faiveley and Bernard Hervet described 2014 as a 'great vintage in white and a very good one in red.' Now that a year has passed and the wines have had a chance to further develop, they still call 2014 great vintage in white but they have also upgraded their collective view of the reds and now believe that they are merit being called 'great, at least in the Cote de Nuits but the late June hail storm rendered things much more challenging in the Cote de Beaune...As to the wines, they have definitely surprised us by how much they have improved during the course of their elevage and if there's one word we would use to describe them it would be purity. They have everything they need to age well plus they are incredibly transparent to the underlying terroir. The 2014s should very much please those who enjoy classically styled burgundies.'"

Winery Faiveley

Region: Burgundy

In the beautiful French wine region of Burgundy, there is archaeological evidence to suggest that there has been viticultural activity going on for at least two thousand years. To add to this, there are early written records praising the exceptional wines produced in this region dating back to the 6th century, making Burgundy one of the oldest established and still operational wine regions in the world. The region is most commonly associated with fine red wines, with Pinot Noir being the primary grape varietal grown on its rolling hillsides and gently sloping valleys. However, Chardonnay grapes are also produced in abundance for the production of their fine white wines, with both varietals benefiting greatly from the region's warm, hot summers and the superb soils which make up the terroir.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
