Burgundy 2019 - Domaine de Montille

Domaine de Montille

Our visits to de Montille get (thankfully) longer each year as we continue to deepen our relationship with Etienne, Brian and the team. I can’t think of another address in Burgundy that has such strength in its domaine whites and Cote de Beaune reds (and the highly sought after Vosne Romanée ‘Malconsorts’ cherry on top) so we are delighted to carry a good selection from across their portfolio.

On top of this de Montille has been responsible for the élévage of our 2019 Hospices de Beaune barrels (crowdfunded by syndicate members) AND our first kosher cuvées – three wonderful 1er Crus, including one of Pommard’s top sites ‘Grand Epenots’. 2020 is the first kosher production for the domaine and they are taking it very seriously, working well with our appointed mashgiach team to ensure kashrut is observed but that we are making “great wines that happen to be kosher rather than kosher wines that happen to be drinkable”.

Back to the 2019 vintage then and Brian is rightly pleased with the domaine’s wines again this year commenting on a good balance of acidity and alcohol but adding a note of caution about climate change: 2019 was one of the driest vintages on record and he suggests Burgundy is in “in a window right now. Pinot Noir is a delicate variety and we need more water and less sun”. Overall he preferred slightly fewer whole bunches and less new oak than 2018. Etienne adds that 2019 has a “classic textural character” and was “a consensual vintage – everyone could make the style of wine they wanted, unlike the last three vintages, here there is something for everyone”. The latter is certainly true here at de Montille with chiselled, polished reds and racy but juicy whites. Once again Beaune 1er Cru (both colours) continues to over perform and offer exceptional value...

Christian Clerget

Christian Clerget

"...real purity and succulence across the range with a minerality and tension that quivers like a bloodhound on the scent."

Comte Armand

Comte Armand

Although it takes years to reach its full potential, it’s worth the wait as with maturity Epeneux is like a universe in a glass, exploding exponentially in all directions at once.

Duroché

Pulling up at Pierre’s in Gevrey is accompanied by a sense of huge excitement and a question – can he do it yet again? The answer is an emphatic yes.

Edouard Delaunay

Edouard Delaunay

The consistent balance of succulence and focus, sweetness and salinity, authenticity and sophistication shows that there are great things ahead for Maison Delaunay.

François Raquillet

François Raquillet

Up-and-coming pockets away from the centre can often provide real satisfaction for less money. Here, Mercurey is one such area that is definitely fulfilling its promise.

Geantet-Pansiot

Geantet-Pansiot

Fabien and Vincent make superb and unjustly overlooked wines; they taste extremely well young and have a great capacity to age.

Georges Lignier

Georges Lignier

“The vintage of my life” is how the ever ebullient Benoit Stehly describes 2019, adding “the grapes were perfect, the balance, energy and terroir expression – perfect.”

Henri Magnien

Henri Magnien

These were among the most hedonistic, plush and muscular sets of wines we tried, although alcohol levels remained between 12.7 and 13.6%, and there is no lack of energy here.

Jane Eyre

Jane Eyre

One of the pioneers of the growing micro-negotiant movement, Jane continues her inexorable rise to stardom.

Jean-Marc Boillot

Jean-Marc Boillot

The Boillot wines are rich, ripe and ample but oak is kept to a maximum of 30% and there is always the underlying minerality and a core of zesty citrus to balance the waxy, yellow fruits.

Jean Tardy

Jean Tardy et Fils

“2019 has the warmth and richness of 2015, with the freshness and terroir expression of 2016.”

Long-Depaquit

Long-Depaquit

Within the house of Albert Bichot, Domaine Long-Depaquit is well known for its careful selection of Chablis styles.

Michel Gros

Michel Gros

Low yields, hand picking, total destemming and minimal racking are factors in the resultant style of Michel’s wines – supple and seductive.

Paul et Marie Jacqueson

Paul et Marie Jacqueson

Extremely proficient winemaking and judicious use of new oak (20% for whites and 25% for reds) make for beautifully crafted, ripe, intense, sensual wines.

Philippe Colin

Philippe Colin

Emmanuel suggests 2019 has the “matier” and intensity of 2014 with more of the generosity of the warmer vintages - definitely “Grand Year”.

Philippe Pacalet

Philippe Pacalet

On the recent hotter vintages: “We have more tannins, more acids, more sugars, more aromatics, more everything.”
