Description
 
ABOUT: Domaine de Montille is one of the most prolific Burgundy producers, whose winemaking heritage traces back to the 17th century. In 1947 Hubert de Montille took over the running of the estate, which was in need of much repair, and commenced the long journey back to health. His son, Étienne came aboard in 1983 and by 1995 was co-managing the property with his father. In 1995 the conversion to organics began, and in 2005 the implementation of biodynamic practices commenced. In 2012 Etienne finalized a deal to purchase Chateau de Puligny-Montrachet which he’d been the managing director of since 2002. This deal made them one of the biggest land holders in the Cote de Beaune and we should all be glad for it. More vines in good hands is always the way to go.

TASTE: Allen Meadows from Burghound thought this was outstanding..."
As de Montille suggested there might be, this is displaying enough sulfur to presently dominate the nose. By contrast there is good concentration and volume to the medium-bodied flavors that brim with mouth coating dry extract before concluding in a dry, clean and solidly complex finale. This is lovely."

PAIR: Sage and garlic pecan roasted vegetables, basil and almond pesto, brown butter Brussels sprouts, poached eggs and toasts and grilled corn.
