From plots which Etienne purchased from Chateau de Puligny Montrachet, near Corpeaux.? Aged in 600-litre barrels with plenty of lees stirring, to give a lot more texture and a little more than weight than you would expect from a regional wine.? Lovely ripe, spicy nose with promising orchard fruit richness leads to an impressively full but succulent palate, with plenty of ripe apple and grapefruit but a pulsing vein of acidity to keep things in check.? Really like the weight and intensity here. For those beginning their De Montille journey, this a terrific setting off point and a lovely vintage in which to do so.
The hue has usually a brillant ruby-garnet colour.?The nose offers effusive aromas of crushed berries (raspberry, redcurrant and blackcurrant come to mind). On the palate, the wine is full of charm and very pleasant to drink : fresh and fruity berry flavours with light and elegant tannins.
