"Really rather sumptuous on the nose. Lots of sweet fruit – very unusual for a 2011. Then structured underneath. Quite a standout." 17 points, Jancis Robinson

Domaine de Montille is known to craft wines with great aromatic purity, always favoring balance and elegance over power and extraction. The wines are classic expressions of Burgundy, produced in the most natural way possible and possessing an impressive ability to age, as the family believes only time can reveal the true potential of the greatest wines.
The domaine's current style remains faithful to Hubert's natural and idealistic approach, which demanded considerable patience while waiting for appropriate drinking windows for certain vintages. Etienne, however, has taken up the task to bring greater aromatic expression and silkier and more unctuous textures to the reds, allowing them to drink earlier, without compromising their ability to age. The domaine is known in Burgundy, among others such as Arlot, DRC, Dujac and Leroy, to regularly vinify using a significant proportion of whole clusters, varying by cuvée and by vintage.

2011 was a truly beautiful vintage with a succesful combination of a vintage like 2007 (low alcohol, high acidity, very good phenolic maturity with still-crunchy fruits) and a vintage with more substance and sappiness like 2009. The alcohol levels are low, generally around 12.5%, and the acidities are high without sticking out. If we had to choose a few adjectives to characterize this vintage, these would be the ones : freshness, energy, transparency, fluidity, balance and harmony.
