Notes

With its floral charm, electric energy and finely-etched but binding structure this is a true all-rounder. Exemplary Volnay that offers fruit blossom and violet aromas alongside cool, fresh black and red cherry flavour notes with touches of cherry stone and salt. The mineral component is distinctive but melds well with the perfumed yet sapid fruit. Like the Mitans this is fermented only with whole bunch, the ageing is with a shade more new oak (approximately 40%) but this is barely discernible, it’s just a fundamentally different wine with a strong terroir character. Taillepieds has gravelly top soil over limestone resulting in tight-grained powerful wine. These are the domaine’s oldest Volnay vines, 60 years-old.

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%
