We first met Arlette Michel and her father in 1995. We liked the wine - and the people - so we bought numerous samples to bring home for re-appraisal in the cold light of an English winter. Time passed and we forgot about our Montagny until, by chance, we unearthed the samples in our cellar. We tasted them right away, and they were delicious - but the labels didn't have the vintage on them and neither did the cork, and we couldn't remember. So, the only thing to do was to go back and see if they could!
When we re-visited we found that Monsieur Michel had retired and the domaine was now run by Arlette and her husband Philippe. Everything was just as neat and tidy, the welcome was even warmer and the wines were excellent. But could they tell us what we had bought two years previously? "Of course," said Arlette, producing a slim document file that had a 3D Wines' business card stapled to the outside. Inside was a note of the date of our visit and a complete list of what we had tasted and what we had bought! Not only did they make excellent wine and were very welcoming - but their administration was superb. We asked them there and then whether they would like to join the 3D Wines 'club'.
For those who wish to stay a little longer, the Andreottis have a gîte at the domaine, just opposite their own house.
