This is also wonderfully fresh and pure with a nose of Granny Smith apples, lemon rind, white flowers and wet stone. There is plenty of size and weight to the sleekly muscular flavors that enjoy excellent mid-palate density while displaying an intense minerality on the saline, dry and lengthy finish. In much the same fashion as the Narvaux this will need some bottle age to develop better depth but the potential is certainly present. This is a Corton-Charlemagne of power and finesse.

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. Domaine de Montille’s 2011 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru has a similar nose to Louis Latour’s: austere and minerally, more tertiary in style than Louis Jadot’s Corton-Charlemagne with a light marine influence that becomes more prominent with aeration. The palate is quite effervescent on the entry with orange zest and lime, although it does not quite possess the complexity of the previous two wines and feels smudged on the finish. eRobertParker.com.November, 2014

Domaine de Montille is now without doubt one of the finest producers in Burgundy. This is a domaine with considerable history: Hubert de Montille inherited the domaine in the 1950s. A pioneer of domaine bottling, he is one of the grand old men of Burgundy. His son, Etienne has been in charge since 1995, having assisted his father here since the early 1980s. Etienne moved to fully organic farming in 1995, and the transition to biodynamics began in 2005; at the same time the domaine expanded into the Côte de Nuits, with some exceptional plots in Nuits St Georges and Vosne, including a very special parcel of Les Malconsorts – Cuvee Christiane - from vines just under La Tache.
