2016 - Domaine de Montille, Beaune 1er Cru Les Perrieres
- Cote de Beaune
- 89 - 91 WA
The 2016 Beaune 1er Cru les Perrieres comes from 100% limestone soils and includes one-third whole cluster fruit. Half of the vineyard was vanquished by frost. It has a modest, tightly wound bouquet with blackberry and raspberry fruit, loamy scents surfacing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with impressive focus, a little stern and abrupt perhaps, with plenty of freshness and vitality. A bit aloof at the moment, but I think this will come good once in bottle.
