Domaine de Montille Beaune 1er Cru 'Les Aigrots' blanc
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.
"A vineyard that is famous courtesy of Domaine Lafarge, although less than 10% of its production is white. Etienne is one among a growing number (ourselves very much included) who are pleased to see the premier crus of Beaune starting to regain the exalted reputation they once held. Right below hillside of Beaune, behind the rugby stadium, there are heavier soils, but on top of limestone. Somewhere in between the power of Corton Charlemagne and the elegance and floral character of the famed wines of Cotes de Blanc, but about half the price of a Chassagne Montrachet 1er cru of similar quality. A small amount of new oak adds to the wine’s generosity but the style is deliberately kept quite lean and saline to ensure the mineral qualities of the vineyard are what linger. The story and value proposition are compelling and if you are not already on the “beaunewagon” – Aigrots will tip you over the line.
"The first white to be picked, the Beaune Aigrots shows a refreshing green tint, some of the beneficial reduction character, very tightly wound, pure white fruit behind, lean but not without flesh, well balanced and persistent. 15% new wood used. Tasted: October 2021" 91-93 pts, Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy
