1999 de Montille, Volnay Les MitansNov. 2005
Medium-plus cherry-red colour – looks very young. The nose, save for a few higher tones, is a dead ringer for the Potel Mitans. This was a wine that was a little disjointed and very soft to start with, but really tightened-up and came good after 30 minutes. The palate is much more understated, great texture – the tannins are much finer – the mid-palate is quite soft (reminds me of Geantet-Pansiot), there is good intensity and a very sneaky length. Much more understated than the Potel rendition, each have there place, but typically I would plump for the chunkier Potel – but then I like Pommard!
