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.
5% new oak. A densely fruited nose of lemon zest, petrol and acacia blossom aromas introduces round, delicious and solidly complex flavors that possess good mid-palate sap and plenty of precision and punch on the palate staining and mouth coating finish. I like the balance and the length is impressive. Tasted: Oct 01, 2009 Score: 89 Drink: 2012+ Issue 36 Allen Meadows; Burghound
Like the two preceding wines, this also evidences excellent purity on the high-toned red berry fruit nose that complements the nicely rich, round and energetic medium-bodied flavors that are supple yet on the reserved side, all wrapped in a slightly dry finish that may or may not round off with 3 to 4 years in bottle.
