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.
The whole cluster vinification is clearly in evidence as here the nose is intensely floral with ample spice and tea elements adding breadth to the cool and pure mélange of both red and dark pinot fruit. The mouth feel of the medium weight plus flavors is impressively refined in large part thanks to the dense but fine tannins that shape the lingering and wonderfully persistent finish. De Montille has consistently done a very fine job with his Clos de Vougeot and 2013 will only add to that growing string of successes.
