This vineyard of 1.62 hectares, planted on clay-driven soils at the foot of the slope, offers us a wine of generous pleasure with lots of fruit that can deliver its full potential even in its youth. It drinks well without too much of a wait, but it can nonethless surprise with its aging capacity of approximately 15 years.

The 2017 Beaune Les Sizies 1er Cru, which is due to be bottled before Christmas 2018 and contains a little less new oak than other crus, has a well defined and vibrant red cherry and wild strawberry scented bouquet. The palate is well balanced with supple tannin, ripe dark cherry and blackberry fruit leading to a nicely structured, graphite-tinged finish that lingers in the mouth. Recommended.

Aromas of raspberry, cherries and dried herbs introduce the 2017 Beaune 1er Cru Les Sizies, a medium-bodied, chalky wine with a delicate core of tangy fruit and a moderately intense finish. A touch of asperity marks it out as one of de Montille's less successful 2017s, though it may well flesh out in bottle.
