De Montille Volnay 1er Cru 'Les Brouillards'
This wine is part of a crowdfunded parcel of wine being produced exclusively for Honest Grapes for delivery in early 2023.Domaine de Montille wanted their first kosher wines to set a new benchmark so chose prestigious, discrete-szied premier cru sites that are picked at around the same time and usually early which is a bonus in a forward vintage like 2020. The cuvees have not needed acidification or chaptalisation either and both reds are 100% whole cluster so minimal intervention is required to ensure quality. To ensure the barrels are kosher, they are filled up three times with water, left for 24-hrs each time and emptied, then refilled with fresh water and rinsed. The barrels are then inspected and approved. This process necessarily begins four days prior to harvest.
The domaine's wines are known for their great aromatic purity. They always favour balance and elegance over power and extraction. The wines are classic expressions of Burgundy, of their appellations in general and of their specific terroirs in particular. The farming methods they use contribute to this individual style, and their winemaking methods aim to avoid excessive outside influences in order to bring out the equilibrium that can be found naturally in Burgundian terroir.
The Domaine has practiced organic viticulture since 1995. Today, their wines are certified by Ecocert. Additionally, since 2005, biodynamic practices have been implemented.
Volnay is the stronghold of the family estate. This modestly-sized appellation of 207 hectares, entirely devoted to Pinot Noir, is nestled on the middle of the slopes and composed of a terroir dominated by clay, marl and limestone that long ago conquered the hearts of the dukes of Burgundy, who were proprietors of a portion of the vineyard.
"100% whole bunch, 50% new oak, picked 20th Aug, gentle extraction, cool fermentation. From 35-year old vines planted in sandy soil on top of limestone. Brouillards is a nice dry vineyard, so rot free. The polished nose shows sweet red plums and raspberries, and a little smoke and cedar. The palate is generous and svelte with plush but crunchy tannins, lots of plums and tight red cherries, a slight earthy note, very charming indeed" Tom Harrow, Honest Grapes Wine Director
