Outstandingly good, complex and multifaceted all at the same time. It’s a ménage à trois of comforting and delicious desserts, a tasting journey from banoffee through key lime pie and finishing with poires belle helene. But that’s not all, as this elegant king reveals a butterscotch and malt ending to the journey, bringing a whole new meaning to the words ‘long finish’. Truly wonderful in every way.
Domaine Decelle-Villa is the love child of passionate winemakers Pierre-Jean Villa and Olivier Decelle. Villa, who had already established himself in classic producing regions of northern Rhône, had a dream to bring his wine making expertise to Burgundy. He met his soulmate in Decelle, saviour of Jean Faure in Saint-Emilion and Mas Amiel in southern France. They shared a common vision of vinification: to make great Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that reflects the great terroirs of Nuits-Saint-George in Burgundy.
This exciting new venture has proved a success due to the magnum of experience and knowledge from both men. As with all of Decelle’s ventures, the quality of soil is a vital ingredient to the quality of the wine, so the 3 hectares of land are all managed biodynamically.
