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.

Here there is a bit more wood influence on the distinctly earthy and quite floral aromas of dark currant, poach plum and a softly spicy top note. The sleeker if not quite as dense medium-bodied flavors possess focused power that really builds as the dusty and serious finish sits on the palate. Excellent.

The 2018 Beaune 1er Cru Les Grèves is showing well, offering up an inviting bouquet of sweet berry fruit, grilled game and soil tones, followed by a medium to full-bodied palate that's ampler and more concentrated than the Perrières but fresher too, with lively acids and powdery structuring tannins. Date: Feb 2020; Drink: NA; Rating: 91-93 Points; William Kelley; Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
