2019 Pommard 1er Cru Les Pézerolles, Domaine de Montille

Pézerolles produces some of the prettiest wines in Pommard. The limestone vineyard lies on the Beaune side of the village, just above Les Epeneaux. It has supple dark fruits, with some beautiful chalky freshness from the fine-grained tannins.

TASTING NOTES

The 2019 Pommard Les Pézerolles 1er Cru is much more backward on the nose compared to de Montille’s other Pommards, offering brambly red berry fruit, clove and bay leaf. The palate is beautifully balanced, the 50% whole cluster contributing a light pepperiness but allowing the terroir to shine. Smooth on the finish.

Domaine de Montille

Charismatic Etienne de Montille has stewarded the family domaine since taking responsibility in 1995. With an enviable selection of vineyards, careful winemaking with the use of whole bunch altered to suit the vintage, and sensitive élévage, it’s no surprise that this estate continues to rise towards the top. With a cellar overseen by the talented, affable American Brian Sieve and his own son joining the family business, Etienne is doing all the right things to ensure the wines thrive.
