Tasting Notes

A strikingly elegant, airy and cool nose is comprised by notes of black cherry, anise, violet, lilac and soft earth, all of which is trimmed in a background whisper of oak. The lacy, vibrant and lightly mineral-inflected flavors possess a bit more richness than usual while delivering first-rate depth and length on the palate coating finish. This is one of the better performances for the de Montille Mitans that I have seen recently.

Score: 90/93Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (66), April 2017

The 2015 Volnay 1er Cru Mitans, 100% whole cluster with 35% new oak, has a powerful, well-defined bouquet with redcurrant, cranberry and pomegranate scents that are beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip in the mouth, perhaps not quite as charming on the finish as the Volnay Champans, yet with the substance to suggest that this will age easily over 15-20 years. Another very impressive wine from de Montille.
