Wine Expert Note:

The Domaine Laurent Cognard Montagny Premier Cru 'Les Bassets' is an exceptional wine that showcases the best qualities of Montagny Premier Cru. On the nose, this wine offers a delightful bouquet of ripe citrus fruits, such as lemon and grapefruit, accompanied by subtle floral notes. There is also a hint of minerality, which adds complexity to the aroma profile. The palate is equally impressive, with a well-balanced combination of fruitiness and acidity. The citrus flavors continue to shine, with additional layers of green apple and pear. The wine has a medium body and a smooth, creamy texture that adds to its overall elegance. The finish is long and satisfying, leaving a lingering impression of citrus and a touch of oak. The acidity provides a refreshing and crisp sensation, making it a perfect companion for seafood dishes or creamy cheeses. Read more
Taste Flavor
info

Sweetness

The alcohol level in wine is a measure of the amount of alcohol present in the beverage. The degree of heat or ‘burn’ at the back of the throat is roughly proportional to the amount of alcohol consumed. It ranges from Very Low to Very High.

Intensity
info
Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
