2009 DEux Montille, Saint-Romain “Le Jarron” AC, White Burgundy, France.
Alix de Montille crafts some of the best great value white Burgundies and her 2009’s are stunning and stylish, especially the 2009 Saint-Romain Le Jerron. This pretty and savvy Chardonnay comes from top parcels in Saint-Romain and it shows fine detailed fruit, mineral and hazelnut character that reminds of Meursault and Chassagne with matchstick, apple and pear fruit, crushed stone and river rocks with hints of fig, honey and lemon. This round offering from DEux Montille is medium to full bodied with ripe and lush texture, made to be enjoyed young and fresh. This is a white Burgundy to search out now and to drink over the next year or two.
