ready-improve2011 Beaune, Les Greves, 1er Cru Domaine de Montille

Product: H0283B
  • Ready, but will improve

Description

Etienne de Montille thinks he has made brilliant 2011s and we are inclined to agree with him. They have freshness, balance, low alcohol, good acidity, excellent fruit and wonderful tannin integration. Picking began on 27th August and continued through to the 9th September as individual vineyards ripened. The fruit has attractively ripe flavours while rarely getting beyond 12.5% alcohol and Etienne chose to include slightly fewer stems than in recent vintages, except for the top cuvées.

Gleaming a rich and dense red with thick glycerol rim, no stems were used for this wine. It shows a brilliant density of fruit and is a great Beaune, with power and length. The tannins and acidity are in perfect balance.
