One of my favorite wines, both because it taste great and what they stand for. I just love the strong commitment to a classic conception of balance and place.

A legendary winemaker showing all of his skills. Still ripe but nervous acid; firm tannin but layers of silk. One more in the cellar that will have to wait another five years.

Solid Volnay style .. Tough year and it shows. Muted fruit and limited depth. The 97' showed mature red/black raspberry but a limited finish. Hoped for more, I think it may just be past it's prime.

What a fantastic way to start our anniversary dinner at Ernas Elderberry House! A trip down memory lane to our time in Burgundy where we visited Domaine du Montille!
