Domaine de Montille Pommard Les Rugiens-Bas 1er Cru 2019

92-94 points


Etienne de Montille commented that 2019 "presented its fair share of challenges but nothing we haven't seen before. However, the challenges weren't without consequence as each of them took a bite out of the potential yields. This was the case even though individually none of them were serious, but when we added them all together, it cost us around 25%. In the end, though, the fruit was spotless and ripe with good acidities. The skins were thick, and we used varying proportions of whole clusters while vinifying very softly to avoid extracting too much tannin. As to the style of the reds, they remind of a hypothetical blend of 2016 and 2017 as they combine the density and power of the former with the elegance and terroir transparency of the latter. They should be capable of aging gracefully for years.

This wine is made with 100% whole bunch clusters

A strikingly pretty and overtly floral nose is both cool and elegant while discreetly revealing its aromas of spicy dark berries. The powerful and tautly muscular broad-shouldered flavours brim with sappy dry extract while the intensely saline finish is chiselled and hugely long. This is outstanding though note well that it is very much built-to-reward extended patience.
