Domaine A & P de Villaine, Les Montots, Mercurey

When Aubert de Villaine came to Burgundy to look after Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, he was looking for a place to live away from the Côte de Nuits. He fell in love with Bouzeron and bought a rundown estate. Today, it has 21ha and is managed by his nephew Pierre de Benoist. This wine has inviting aromas of spice and red fruit with savoury notes. Rounded yet elegant pure Pinot Noir characters. Good tension on the finish too.
