2020 AOP Monthélie 'Les Crays'


Regular price $105 750ml Sale

Pinot Noir from the lieu-dit 'Les Crays', which sits right on the border on Meursault. Whole bunch maceration, raised in old barrels for just over one year and then settled in tank for two months before bottling. Not fined or filtered, with only a small amount of sulfur added just before bottling.

The nose is full of sandalwood, cinnamon, cocoa and other spice. The palate is laced with blackberry fruit and plum. Fresh at the front, with a smooth entry. There is a slight grip, with lingering tannins. This has plush fruit, depth and power, with hints of spice, cool menthol and tobacco. More serious and deep than the others. Opens up well with air, and is smoother and more approachable after a day or two. Cellar for a bit, or decant if drinking now.
