Domaine de Villaine is located in Bouzeron, nestled in the Côte Chalonnaise region between Chassagne-Montrachet and Santenay to the north and Rully and Mercurey to the south. Planted with vines by the monks of Cluny in the Middle Ages, this small, sunny valley has a rich and lengthy tradition of producing quality wines which reflect their exceptional terroir.
A mostly floral nose also offers up notes of apple and fennel before dissolving into rich, full and overtly energetic medium-bodied flavors that culminate in a minerally and linear finish. Very fine quality for its level and this should reward two to three years of cellar time. Tasted: Oct 01, 2009 Score: 87 Drink: 2011+ Comments: Outstanding Issue 36 Allen Meadows; Burghound
