A beautifully and highly expressive nose of acacia blossom, cool pear and mineral reduction scents precede exceptionally well-delineated, intense and energetic flavors that possess an abundance of minerality on the impeccably balanced finish. This is quite dry but not really austere and should offer up to a decade of cellar potential. In sum, this is terrific. Tasted: Jun 11, 2013. Drink: 2019+

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The aromatics on the Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru les Caillerets 2011 is more austere than Anne-Claude Leflaive’s Clavoillon, but it is beautifully defined with wet limestone and sea cave scents that with aeration become very intense. The palate is crisp and taut with very fine tension. It just loses a little intensity toward the finish, but it possesses a surfeit of freshness and precision. This was one of the best white 2011s Burgundy wines that I tasted during an intensive week of peer group tasting. eRobertParker.com.November, 2014

(these vines, which are high on the hill and shaded by the forest above, were picked late, noted Etienne de Montille, and the yield was under 25 hectoliters per hectare): Bright pale yellow. Knockout nose combines pineapple, musky white flowers and botanical herbs (Riesling Schlossberg?). Sweet and tactile but light on its feet, with almost painful lift to its saline flavors of citrus peel and crushed stone. Not especially fleshy but very long and bright on the aftertaste, and not at all austere. A very impressive showing. International Wine Cellar

Very mineral and fresh on the nose . Rich peachy fruit too. Sweet yet restrained on the palate. An impressive balance of power and delicacy. 2015+.

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.
