Terres de Velle Bourgogne Monthélie Les Sous-Roches 2020Regular price €34,40
The vineyard 'Sous-Roches' is a unique and small piece of vineyard of 0.22 hectares on a very steep slope (25%) facing East. The vines on this vineyard are about 20 years old and root in a beautiful limestone soil with pieces of clay and fossils from the former sea. The wine from these vineyards is for us one of the most remarkable mineral wines and lends itself to very fine and delicate (even raw) fish dishes. After slow and slow pressing, the grape juice undergoes a vinification in French barriques and a maturation of about 15 months, 30% of the oak is new, to reflect the elegance and purity of the unique soil in the glass. Extremely complex and balanced in the nose with fresh and floral aromas, soft attack in the mouth with lively acids and full, round mid-structure, long finish.
