At de Montille’s cellar in Meursault, winemaker Brian Sieve led me through a tasting of the domaine’s top cuvées, including the ever-sought-after Volnay 1er cru “Taillepieds”, Pommard 1er cru “Rugiens-Bas” and Vosne-Romanée 1er cru “Malconsorts”. The quality of the wines and Brian’s animated and eloquent explanation of the vintage and vineyard factors that influence their character are essentials components of any trip to the region and this visit was no exception. He used fewer whole bunches and extracted 25% less during fermentation of the reds than 2015, as wanted to ensure the wines remained supple rather than angular, comparing the vintage stylistically to 2002 “with its ripe but crunchy fruit, pure but juicy tannins and bright acidity”. Reds here were ample but energetic, with signature powdered velvet tannins.
