  • 2008 Domaine de Montille Beaune 1er Cru Perrières

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Beaune 1er Cru

    Tasted alongside the 2008 Grèves. By itself, the Grèves is the more impressive wine. The Perrières comes across as too flinty and austere. However, the Perrières was a better pairing with the rabbit. The Perrières has good cherry and strawberry aromas, but is very minerally on the palate. The Grèves lacks the structure the minerality of the Perrières provides.
