2003 Domaine de Montille Volnay 1er Cru Les Mitans

2003 Domaine de Montille Volnay 1er Cru Les Mitans on Sunday for a small special occasion celebration. This is the biggest, plushest and most fruit forward wine I’ve ever had from de Montille. In this case, I knew this in advance and paired it with a rich steak, gratin dauphinois and green beans and it was magic. Still surprisingly primary and brawny, the earth and leafiness are very muted as black cherry and leather/tobacco dominate. Not sure this would pair well with more traditional and lighter fare, but it was good on Sunday night. The vintage character (hot year) dominates.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
