    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Domaine de Montille, Vosne Romanée, Aux Malconsorts, 1er Cru, 2012

    All whole bunch fermented, which is 10% more than usual and aged in 60% new oak but you can’t taste it. Great force and length, dark floral bramble and autumn berry flavours with complex undergrowth, mineral and smoke touches. Dense, complex yet so bright and lifting, great energy. Superb

    ABV:
    13%
    94+/100
    Stephen Tanzer, Vinous
    (vinified with two-thirds whole clusters and aged in 50% new oak): Bright, dark red. Knockout musky but backward nose combines raspberry, flinty minerality and truffley earth. Very concentrated, mineral-driven wine with a restrained sweetness and complex soil tones to its pungent flavors of red cherry and raspberry. Suave and juicy but a bit youthfully imploded, finishing with serious, noble tannins. Already quite smooth but it would be criminal not to lay this down for at least a few years.

    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%
