Bright yellow in colour, this wine reveals pure and refined hints of fresh white peach, together with delicate floral and citrus notes. On the palate, this medium-bodied wine has a delicate structure with marked mineral undertones and a lingering finish.

Despite the fact that the name 'Les Maroques' is derived from the ancient French 'marais', which means 'swamp', this east facing single parcel of Montagny 1er Cru is situated at 300 to 330 metres altitude. The vines are aged between 20 and 58 years old and are planted on well-hydrated clay-limestone soils, resulting in wines characterised by a marked minerality. The 3.5 hectares plot has been farmed organically since the early 2000s.
