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.

"1/3 whole bunch from these denser clay soils. A smoky red and darker fruit nose, with familiar touch of anise, leads to a lively, spicy, palate, bright with red fruits, and a dab of salt on the well-tailored finish. This is good juice, fresh and supple but with some sinews."
Tom, Wine Guru

"One third whole bunch and 15% new wood. No great depth of colour, but an attractive medium depth of cherry and raspberry fruit. The soil retains the water here, which is nowadays a good thing. Shows a bit of oak at the back in this early stage, but the fruit retains its fresh and bright qualities. Tasted: October 2020"
90-92 pts, Jasper Morris MW

"Racked just before harvest, the 2019 Beaune Les Sizies 1er Cru has a lifted red cherry and crushed strawberry nose with touches of undergrowth coming through. The well-balanced palate offers crunchy red berry fruit, the 15% new oak nicely integrated and the 30% whole cluster imparting black pepper notes on the finish. Very fine." 90-92 pts, Neal Martin, Vinous
