Domaine de Montille Volnay les Mitans Premiere Cru 2001

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very sweetly fruited on the nose with a pronounced floral character and bright mineral underpinnings to the lightly roasted fruit. This smells like a bowl of warm cherries with subtle spice and ginger tones. Slightly chewy in the mouth this is full of ripe tannins balanced by slightly soft acids that allow the sweetness of the fruit to be revealed. There is surprising freshness to the curranty and apricot glaze tinged fruit on the mid-palate but this shows it’s youth on the backend, which is lean and compressed ending with a somewhat abrupt finish. A very successful 2003. 91pts
