The 2015 Monthélie is beautifully red fruity this year, despite being the last parcel collected on September the 5th. The bouquet jumps from the glass in a vibrant blend of strawberries, cherries, a fine base of soil tones, violets, woodsmoke and a touch of cedar. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and gorgeously transparent, with a fine core, excellent length and grip and a focused, vibrant and softly tannic finish. This year the les Duresses will drink beautifully right from the outset. (Drink between 2016-2035)
Crunchy berry fruit and wild plum aromas with details of woodsmoke dominate this sappy, supple wine. The palate is laden with juicy fruit and framed by fine, chalky tannins. A delicious Monthélie. Drinking Window 2018 - 2030. (WK)
The 2015 Monthélie Les Duresses has a lovely, frisky raspberry coulis and strawberry-scented bouquet with good intensity. The palate is fleshy and generous with a keen line of acidity, harmonious with a pleasant touch of piquancy on the finish.
Medium red with a faint hint of amber at the rim. Aromas of redcurrant, mint and menthol. Juicy, fresh flavors of red berries and spices display a lovely sugar/acid balance, giving this attractive wine considerable early appeal. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and very good length. The crop here was a full 45 hectoliters per hectare, vs. just 25 to 30 for Lafon's Volnays.
