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 2014 Corton Grand Cru Clos du Roi has a lovely bouquet with briary blackberry and a touch of damp earth, well defined and charming. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and good backbone; there is a subtle sea influence here with impressive structure towards the grippy finish that just has a touch of blockiness. Drink 2018-2030. Score: 89-91 Points; eRobertParker.com #222; Neil Martin
