Domaine de Montille is one of Burgundy’s most revered estates and this burgeoning family property is very much at the top of its game, producing wines of exceptional quality: scintillating, proper Burgundies, unusually across both reds and whites.

Features as one of the Top 10 Côte de Beaune Red Wine Producers and Top 10 Côte de Beaune White Wine Producers in Tim Atkin's Burgundy 2022 Special Report.

Self-confessed ‘acid freak’ Brian Sieve was especially careful with battonage and lees-stirring of the Chardonnays in 2022, to maintain freshness and verve, noting that it was not a high acid vintage. A little less new oak (not that there is ever more than just enough) and whole bunches in the reds than in the previous solar vintages, plus the gentler acid profile means the wines have a charm and immediacy to rival any vintage we’ve tasted from the domaine.

“From the highest part of vineyard with chalkier soils (very near the vines owned by Domaine Roulot), this is fresher in style and later ripening given its elevation. A mixture of small and large oak, of which twenty-five percent is new. For some reason this cuvée can get overlooked, which is what makes it all the more worth looking out for as the complexity and value it punches well above its weight. Rich aromas of nutmeg, baked apple, and bread dough, are balanced by white pepper, pear skin and white flowers. Centred and focussed attack, with a good concentration of fresh orchard fruits, a vivifying spine of saline acidity gives a quenching chalky bite.”
Tom Harrow, Head Wine Guru

What the critics say:

92-94/100Neal Martin, Vinous

"The 2022 Meursault Les Porusots ler Cru has a comparatively backward nose, pineapple mixed with citrus peel and just a touch of honeycomb. The palate is well-balanced with a defined, waxy-textured entry. With fine acidity, it's a slightly smoky style of Meursault with a dab of spice towards the finish. Maybe it needs a little more nerve. Otherwise, this will be a fine Meursault that needs a bit more pizzazz. That might develop by the time it is in bottle. "

91-94/100Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy

"Notably pale in colour. A chiselled, slightly reductive nose, but very fine, with an energy which is much more expressive than usual. Poruzots is showing its usual solid structure, but the fruit inside has taken on personality. No problem with the fruit acid balance either. Drink from 2028-2035. Tasted: October 2023. ****"

About Domaine de Montille

Domaine de Montille is now in its ninth generation under the stewardship of sibling duo Étienne & Alix, who have largely remained true to their father’s vision of creating elegant, pure and balanced wines.

In fact Étienne was instrumental in pushing the sustainability of the Domaine by abandoning all chemical fertilisers and herbicides in 1985 and fully transitioning to biodynamic farming in 2005.
