2017 is so so good for Monthelie. Terrific and spicy nose of sour cherries and mid season cherries. Huge licorice. Poised and focused. Gobs of earth and minerals. Juicy, clean and energetic. There is significant structure and purity. Lovely dusty but substantial tannins. Such laser focus and accessible giving 17 mid season cherry fruit. Really saps out on the finish. Long.

Do NOT Pop and pour. Needs an hour decant. Honestly needs 2 years.

Nose: dense cherry fruit with some cherry licorice. Still integrating the oak. Not over the top but present. The true aromatics flit in and out.

Palate dense structured cherry fruit.

I’m guessing that this will be VERY good in 2 years. Maybe 9.4ish.
