Tasting Notes


Maturity:
Keep

ABV:
13 %

Notes

As much as there is sinew here, there is elegance too. On the more slender side of the Pommard spectrum. Sweet aromatic red fruits lead to a crisp palate of red berry, damson and cooling undergrowth notes. On the finer, slighter side but with sufficient complexity and dimension. Fermented with 50% whole bunches.

Notes
The 2020 Pommard Les Pezerolles 1er Cru contains 50% whole cluster. It has a well-defined and focused bouquet with blackberry, quite sensual with a touch of dried orange peel. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fleshy and ripe, maybe bot quite a well-defined as the best Volnay with a slightly ferrous finish. Fine. Closure: Diam

Domaine de Montille

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%
