Tasting Notes


Maturity:
Keep/Drink

ABV:
12.5 %

Notes

Sensational, a fabulous array of wild fruit - blackberries, damson, cherries, harnessed by powerful but velvety fruit tannins, finishing on complex, deep mineral nuances. Intense, imposing but nothing out of place.

Notes
Good deep red. Musky, highly aromatic nose hints at red berries, minerals, flowers and spices. Densely packed but juicy, tight and imploded today, with its fruit flavors currently dominated by structure. This, too, boasts terrific sappy energy and elegance, not to mention length, but may well require a decade of patience. Very impressive.

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%
