Domaine de Montille Beaune Les Perrieres 2017
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune|
|Brand||Domaine de Montille|
It delivers a mineral, profound and structured wine that needs to spend a few years in the cellar in order to open up fully and develop the complexity worthy of a Premier Cru indication.
The 2017 Beaune Les Perrières 1er Cru includes one-third whole clusters and matures in around 20% new oak. It has a small reduction on the nose but underneath are lively red and black fruit sporting a faint marine influence. The palate is well balanced with fleshy red fruit, quite sumptuous in the mouth with a caressing red cherry and crushed strawberry finish laced with white pepper. This should offer a decade's worth of drinking pleasure.
