Domaine de Montille Bourgogne 2017
The 2017 reds are of great freshness of fruit, with notes of raspberry, strawberry and other red fruits including sour cherry, with a floral touch and spice passing from the entire harvest. The palate is full, ethereal, with crunchy fruit and slightly acidic. The tannins are very well integrated in the fruits with a rather light texture and silky, comparable to the 2010 and 2002 vintages. What's surprising and enjoyable, is the salinity present in our whites, and also in our reds, which is quite rare. The balance between the fruit and the structure allowed us to work with high percentages of whole cluster for many of our cuvées. 2017 is a particular vintage; thanks to the quality of the tannins and more generally the profile of the wines, theses will be pleasant to taste young (especially for the wines of Beaune, Volnay, Pommard) and also after ageing more than 10 years (especially Corton and Côte de Nuits). It is quite rare and deserves to be mentioned.
