Tasting Notes


ABV:
13 %

Notes

Earthy, dense and more introverted than the regular Malconsort but with wonderful notes of damson and blueberry nonetheless. An even more complex, multi-dimensional wine offering notes of undergrowth, spice and mineral. Strong but toned and with a haunting finish. From a very special part of the Malconsort vineyard, a parcel that is the other side of the road to the main Malconsorts block, surrounded by the original part of La Tache.

Notes
(100% vendange entier; 55% new oak): Deep, dark red. Deeply pitched aromas of medicinal black cherry and clove; less floral and spicy than the regular Malconsorts but smells more important. Sappy and extremely concentrated; hugely rich without any impression of heaviness. According to Sieve, the rows of vines that go into this cuvée are a bit less limestone-rich, so this wine is silkier and more delicate in the early going. Boasts outstanding breadth and sap but will need considerable cellaring. Finishes with chewy but refined tannins and slowly building savory length. Grand cru quality here.

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%
