Reviews of purchase Domaine de Montille, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru AOC, 2014
Rich red wine.
Taste wine rich, round, with a delightful concentration, balanced acidity, notes, repeated flavor and persistent aftertaste.
Wine seduces magical aroma with notes of dark berries, complemented by floral and earthy nuances.
The wine is best with game, mature cheeses and red meat for complex sauces.
