    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Domaine de Montille, Volnay, Les Mitans, 1er Cru, 2010

    The result of 100% whole cluster fermentation but no signs of astringency or vegetal character, in fact this is highly attractive and very Volnay in style; flowery notes of bright cherries and cherry stone, wild strawberry and cherry blossom; high-toned ethereal and fresh with a balancing fruit sweetness.

    Stephen Tanzer, Vinous
    (100% whole clusters): Palish red. Complex aromas of raspberry, plum, tobacco, spices, herbs and underbrush. Offers an enticing blend of creamy sweetness and vinosity, with ripe, harmonious acidity and a rocky, saline quality leavening the wine's liqueur-like aspect. Finishes with sweet dusty tannins and excellent rising spicy length.

    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%
