Henri de Villamont, Chorey-Les-Beaune

£31.71
Occupying an impressive nineteenth-century building in Savigny-Lès-Beaune, Henri de Villamont is a medium-sized producer that combines an enviable domaine (they are particularly strong in Chambolle-Musigny) with a meticulously sourced négociant range. The cuverie was updated with the latest equipment less than ten years ago, and underneath there is ample storage for barrels in the beautiful double-height cellar. These features give the winemaker flexibility and precision, resulting in excellent expression of the various terroirs on offer. These include some particularly well-sited vineyards: Auxey-Duresses Les Hautés borders Meursault Vireuils, for example, while Chambolle-Musigny Les Baudes lies just below Bonnes-Mares. In each case, because the former is so much less famous, the value for money is exceptional.

2017 vintage. The vinification lasts 18 days in vat then a passage in barrels for 12 months. We use barrels of 1, 2 or 3 years old. A bright crimson colour with garnet reflects. Its pleasant nose displays a powerful bouquet of ripe fruit such as cherries and raspberries. Its delicate and fleshy mouth is enhanced by silky and generous tannins, soft acidity and roundness. Pairings: Poultry, red meat, mildly favoured cheeses.
