Tasting Note:

Intense dark and concentrated Volnay offering notes of dark bramble and cassis tinged with raspberry and a menthol note. Concentrated but focused and gripping. There is quite some tannic structure here supporting the fruit, but it is a very fine-grained one. Accomplished and complex but this will need time to unwind. 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. The grapes and bunches ripen very well most years so this often is fermented with a lot of whole bunches, usually up to two thirds whole cluster fermentation. Aged in 30% new oak.
