2007 Montagny 1er Cru "Le Las" by Domaine Stephane Aladame

Another bargain at around €10 from a young producer who makes only white wine and cremant from his 5.5 hectares.  We’ve noticed the whites from Montagny have a definitive flavor, maybe due to the more clay-like soils in some of that area as compared to the stonier soils of other villages.  The mineral flavor and underpinnings are definitive and delicious, while balanced nicely with the light fruity, citrus tastes.  The aroma is another Montagny trademark, similar to the way Saint Aubin wines have a unique aroma compared to typical whites from Burgundy.  The more we tasted, the more impressive it became.  Lots of personality and individuality, but never overbearing or showy.  Stéphane makes a very pleasing, delicious white.  Excellent quality.
