Domaine Berthenet is a well-regarded wine estate located in the Montagny appellation within the Côte Chalonnaise, a sub-region of Burgundy, France. The Berthenet family has been involved in winemaking since the 16th century, but the modern winery was established more recently by the family. Today, it is run by François Berthenet, who represents the fourth generation of his family to manage the domaine.

Specializing in white wines made from Chardonnay, Domaine Berthenet produces Montagny wines that are known for their purity, finesse, and mineral character. The Montagny appellation is exclusively for white wines, and the wines from this region are celebrated for their vibrant acidity and freshness, which make them particularly food-friendly and suitable for aging.

The domaine covers about 23 hectares of vineyards, with a significant portion in Premier Cru sites. These vineyards are farmed with sustainable practices to ensure the health of the vineyard and surrounding environment. The commitment to minimal intervention in both vineyard and winery helps to ensure that the wines express the unique terroir of Montagny.

François Berthenet focuses on precise vinification techniques, including controlled fermentations and careful aging, often in a mix of stainless steel and oak to maintain the characteristic freshness of the wines while adding complexity and texture.

Domaine Berthenet has gained a reputation for producing consistently high-quality wines that offer excellent value, showcasing the potential of Montagny and the skill of a dedicated winemaking family.

The French Wine region of Burgundy (aka “Bourgogne”) may be small in size, but its influence is huge in the world of vino. The complexity of Burgundy can cast fear into the heart of even a seasoned wine pro, but fear not – the region need only be as complicated as you want it to be. Yes, it is home to some of the most expensive wines in the known universe, but there are also tasty and affordable wines.

Main grapes:

Pinot Noir originated in Burgundy and these vines cover 34% of the region, accounting for 29% of overall wine production. The red grape does extremely well in limestone and clay soil, which helps create their complexity. Pinot Noir wines from Burgundy range in colour from cherry to brick, are light in body, and typically have red fruit and spicy flavours. Gamay is a red grape also grown in Burgundy, but only makes up 10% of the vines.

Chardonnay is the primary grape for white wines in Burgundy, making up 48% of the vines and 68% of production. Chardonnay appreciates Burgundy’s marl soil, which gives it delicate floral, fruit, and mineral aromas and full-bodied flavours. Aligoté is the second white grape, accounting for 6% grown. {Read more about the ancient Aligoté grape in Burgundy.}

The region does produce a sparkling wine called Crémant de Bourgogne. It can be made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Aligoté, Gamay, Sacy, and Melon. Varieties include blanc, blanc de blancs, blanc de noirs, and rosé.

Montagny is located in the Côte Chalonnaise, a sub-region of Burgundy, France, and is dedicated exclusively to white wines made from Chardonnay. Established as an appellation in 1936, Montagny is known for producing crisp, mineral-driven wines that are more approachable and often provide great value compared to more renowned neighbors to the north.

The vineyards in Montagny are set at various altitudes between 250 to 400 meters, which supports a cool microclimate that helps preserve acidity and freshness in the grapes. The soil is predominantly limestone mixed with clay and chalk, ideal for Chardonnay, giving the wines a pronounced mineral quality, which is a defining feature of Montagny's terroir.

Montagny wines are typically vibrant, displaying green apple and citrus fruit flavors, alongside a distinct flinty or stony minerality. They may also show floral notes and, when aged in oak, hints of toast and vanilla, which complement rather than dominate the fruit's freshness.

While many Montagny wines are best enjoyed young for their freshness, those from Premier Cru vineyards offer greater complexity and structure, allowing them to age gracefully for several years. These Premier Cru wines are more concentrated and can develop richer, more nuanced flavors over time.

Montagny, though not as well-known as some Burgundy appellations, is highly respected among Burgundy enthusiasts. It offers superb Chardonnay expressions at more accessible price points, showcasing the quality and tradition of Burgundy in a unique local context.
