2019 Pommard Les Cras, Domaine de Montille

This parcel lies at the bottom of the hill, beneath Rugiens. On this side - the Volnay side - of the village, the soils are ferrous, with the iron oxide colouring them red. Low yields combined with 50% whole bunch fermentation means this vigorous soil is tamed, and the wine expresses big, dark fruits kept fresh with crunchy tannins. A nice flicker of blood orange running through the dark fruit gives nuance and complexity.

TASTING NOTES

The 2019 Pommard Les Cras, including 50% whole cluster, has a bold blackberry and raspberry bouquet that was a little backward, as it had only just gone through malo. The palate is structured for a Village Cru, offering good depth and grip and earthy black fruit tinged with tobacco on the finish. Very fine.
