Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Domaine de Montille, Pommard, Les Pezerolles, 1er Cru, 2005
Neal Martin, Vinous
The 2005 Pommard Les Pezerolles 1er Cru has a very intense, quite curmudgeonly bouquet that shows a touch of reduction that frustratingly only shifts in the final glass. Dark berry fruit, hints of cinnamon and undergrowth begin to emerge, quite broody for the first two hours and only lightening up at the final dregs! The palate is tannic and structured, grippy and assertive, shown up here by the sweetness and light of the 1985 Volnay Les Mitans. There is a great Pommard here - but it is not coming out to play any time soon. Tasted at Noble Rot restaurant with Mr. S.

Domaine de Montille

Etienne is one of Burgundy's great purists, his long-lived wines may need time but they are some of the most honest and terroir-driven wines in Burgundy. The wines are fermented using all or partial whole bunch vinification depending on the vintage, élévage is long and slow in their cold cellars and percentages of new oak are low, rarely more than 50% even for Malconsorts. From some of the most vivid, intense Beaune's there are to perfumed, stylish Volnays and silky Vosnes Romanee, Etienne makes a borad range of some of Burgundy's most polished wines. The Domaine's policy on white wines is to pick as early as possible, as soon as the fruit has just approached ripeness, resulting in tense, fine wines with alcohols rarely more than 13%
