Great yeast, equal to wild yeast, in creating quality in white wines. Who would guess a yeast with a lesser reputation in the 80s would emerge again as one of the best.

We use this with Chardonnay with great success, our choice is M2 from Vinquiry (LLamand)

Montrachet is a great yeast for Chardonnay, not quite as strong a performer as "Natural" with respect to sur lies attributes.
A year ago I started this forum to find out what winemakers thought. I recommended it to over 20 winemakers in 2002. Results are in for two vintages, it seems clear that Montrachet, largely the various strains sold by Lalvin such as F33, is great performer from the North Coast to northern parts of the Central Coast, e.g. Santa Cruz..

This is a great yeast that many educators poo-pooed in the 1980s and 1990s so it went away. Great yeast allways return.

Have used it to increase the complexity of red wines in Virginia, but what I have heard is that it is linked to higher production of reduction sulfur containing compounds and Volatile Acidity.
