Domaine De Montille

Lovely, gentle and pretty wines were made here in 2017. De Montille make elegant wines and seem to know instinctively how to handle a mid-weight vintage. Others might be tempted to over extract but they are not. The grapes’ characteristics are shaped by the weather and then transparently translated into wine.

One can judge a producer by its Bourgogne rouge: it’s the most difficult wine to make well and de Montille’s very delicate Bourgogne pinot noir is a model of balance and minimalism. The harvest started on 28th August, stopping on 30th and 31st when there was 20-40ml of rain and starting again on 2nd September. I note the percentage of whole-bunch fermentation (used to add freshness) in the notes for the red wines below. Diam corks are used for all white wines.

Domaine de Montille, Bourgogne 2017

One can judge a producer by its Bourgogne rouge: it’s the most difficult wine to make well and de Montille’s very delicate Bourgogne pinot noir is a model of balance and minimalism. This delicate, fine-boned wine comes from vineyards below Volnay and Puligny classed as Bourgogne and aged between 45 and 55 years of age. 100% destemmed. A third was vinified and matured in tank to preserve the bright fruit. Aromatic, light in body and very pretty. Drink from 2022 to 2026. 13%

Domaine de Montille Meursault 'Saint Christophe' 2017

Domaine de Montille, Beaune Premier Cru Les Grèves 2017

From 55-60 year-old vines on a vineyard with more clay than the Sizies (the other Beaune premier cru from de Montille we offer in 2017), producing a bigger, richer and rounder style of Beaune with sweet, friendly tannins. 33% whole-bunch fermented. Drink from 2025 to 2032. 13%

Domaine de Montille, Corton Grand Cru Clos de Roi 2017

A fine and elegant 2017 from perhaps the top red Corton vineyard. The vines are between 65 and 75 years old, and of excellent quality, producing regular yields. The relatively sweet tannins in this vintage produce a silky palate. 66% whole-bunch fermented. Drink from 2025 to 2036. 13%

Domaine de Montille, Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru Les Thorey 2017

Exquisite. Les Thorey is high on a scrubby hillside with little soil over the limestone bedrock, making for a pretty, aromatic and fine-boned wine which in 2017 offers a perfumed nose and bright vibrant palate. 66% whole-bunch fermented. Drink from 2024 to 2033. 13%

Domaine de Montille, Pommard Premier Cru Pézerolles 2017

In Etienne’s hands this Pommard always tastes like a silky Volnay: neither big nor rustic, but fine-boned and delicate, with gentle sweet tannins. 33% whole-bunch fermented. Drink from 2024 to 2033. 13%

Domaine de Montille, Volnay Premier Cru Taillepieds 2017

Superb. Taillepieds’ 80-year-old vines yield exceptional fruit and serve to replicate new stock for the domaine. Its gravel-over-limestone soil is warm and it produces ripe yet fine wines. 100% whole-bunch fermented. Drink from 2024 to 2033. 13%

Domaine de Montille, Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru Le Cailleret 2017

Midway to a grand cru in structure. Cailleret is a superb vineyard which borders Le Montrachet. Ripe, rich and concentrated yet finishing freshly, this shows the lovely balance of the 2017 vintage. Drink from 2022 to 2030. 13%

Domaine de Montille, Pommard Premier Cru Rugiens-Bas 2017

Outstanding. The clay soil of Rugiens (beautifully translated by wine writer Hugh Johnson as ‘ruddy’!) is coloured red by iron. Red clay produces wines with sweet and round tannins and Bas is the best part. A dense, powerful and inky 2017 whose 40% new oak is absorbed without a trace. 66% whole-bunch fermented. Drink from 2026 to 2038. 13%

Domaine de Montille, Vosne-Romanée Premier Cru Malconsorts Cuvée Christiane 2017

Named after Etienne de Montille’s mother, this is from a block that touches grand cru La Tâche. It has everything this domaine's straight Malconsorts has… and then just a little bit more! The tannins are slightly sweeter and there is a greater sense of opulence. 100% whole-bunch fermented. Drink from 2028 to 2040. 13%
