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.

Once again, the wood influence is subtle though not imperceptible on the slightly cooler aromas of lavender, violet, rose petal, red and dark cherry and a whiff of plum liqueur. There is excellent volume to the solidly concentrated and intensely mineral-driven flavors that possess evident muscle and power on the firm, serious and complex finale that is also clearly built-to-age. In a word, impressive. Date: April 2020; Drink: 2035+; Issue: 78; Comments: Sweet spot Outstanding; Rating 92-94 Points; Allen Meadows; Burghound

The 2018 Pommard 1er Cru Les Rugiens Cuvée Hubert unfurls in the glass with a complex bouquet that mingles aromas of plums and berries with lifted top notes of orange and peony, as well as savory nuances of grilled meats and rich soil tones. Medium to full-bodied, rich and enveloping, its textural attack segues into a layered core structured around a muscular chassis of ripe, powdery tannin, before concluding with a long finish. Date: Feb 2020; Drink: NA; Rating: 92-94+ Points; William Kelley; Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
