Notes
(one-third vendange entier): Good dark red. Black cherry aroma complicated by iron and meaty nuances. Sweet and saline on the palate, with a chewy intensity and subtle soil character to the red cherry and mineral flavors. Broad, supple and very suave on the long aftertaste, which features serious dusty tannins and considerable incipient complexity.

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%
