Tasting Note:

Solid, concentrated, suave and velvety. Compact but smooth dark berry fruit flavours. Notes of sloe, bramble, creme de mûre and black cherry. De Montille’s vines in Mitans are 55-60 years-old; they produce tiny (millerande) berries every year that are highly concentrated. The vineyard’s soils are light and shallow with a strong limestone content.
