The Domaine de Montille was established in Volnay in the middle of the XVIII century. Today it farms 20 hectares of vines, essentially Premier and Grand Crus, mainly in the Côte de Beaune but also in the Côte de Nuits. The domaine produces about 8,000 cases covering 20 appellations. During the XX century, Hubert de Montille wrote the finest pages of the domaine’s history. The lawyer and his children have always strived to return their domaine, which had declined in the past, to the stature it once enjoyed. Furthermore, it is thanks to Hubert that during the 1960’s the domaine became renowned around the world.
A relatively high-toned nose of warm iron-infused earth, lavender and cool red pinot fruit leads to round, rich and muscular medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent volume but also impressive precision. The mouth feel is also cool and restrained before culminating in a balanced, linear and austere finish. This is also anything but precocious and will need a long cellar snooze but it's ready for prime time.
