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.

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.

"This iron and clay-topped limestone vineyard which has vines two thirds of which are between sixty and eighty years old, is a perennial favourite of mine. Brian refers to it as a “Petit Pommard”, for its depth and minerality. 50% whole bunch in 2019. Concentrated compact nose of plum skin and a ferrous, cedary note. Palate is juicy and intense, with great tension and dry richness - vibrant, fresh, penetrating and high-toned. Really shows the heights to which Beaune can ascend." Tom Harrow, Wine Guru

"One third whole bunch, 25% new wood. Pretty mid purple. Succulent fruit stands out more here than the sometimes more austere Grèves character. Rich, intense, deep cherry fruit with a sterner backbone in the mouth, all the intensity is at the back. This has the focus that we expect from Grèves. Tasted: October 2020" 91-94 pts, Jasper Morris

"The 2019 Beaune Grèves 1er Cru includes around 50% whole cluster fruit. It is much more broody and backward on the nose compared to the Les Perrières, the fruit slightly darker. The palate is medium-bodied with ferrous-tinged red fruit, a little fuller than Les Perrières, though without quite the same degree of mineralité on the finish." 90-92 pts, Neal Martin, Vinous
