There is no address in Burgundy for which we have more affection than Domaine de Montille.

Anyone with a pumping heart was instantly charmed by the authenticity and humility of the late, great patriarch, Hubert de Montille. Unequivocal and confident in his ability to reveal greatness through transparency, it's difficult to distinguish whether we are talking about de Montille or the terroir of Volnay, and that is the mark of compelling Burgundy.

Hubert de Montille passed the reins at his famous domaine to his son Etienne about 20 years ago. He died about five years ago. Yet he is such a giant of a figure in Burgundy that it is still impossible to think about de Montille without thinking about Hubert. It helps that Hubert’s name remains on the label!

Hubert may be best known internationally for making hard-assed wines. He didn’t care what Robert Parker or anyone else said. He followed his own vision of Burgundy tradition, which included a fair bit of tannic extraction. His passion and determination earned him a starring role in Mondovino, the anti-globalization wine film by Jonathan Nossiter.

But Etienne changed things. He wanted more purity, less extraction. He was brought up with the likes of Christophe Roumier and other members of his generation, who wanted to emphasize fruit and terroir rather than structure. Almost right away, the style at de Montille changed.

People liked the wines, of course — they can show very well on release. But would they hold up the way his father’s legendary wines do? A recently consumed, and very beautiful, 2002 Pommard seemed to confirm the they age just fine! Will they go 40-50 years like his dad’s wines? Who knows, and who cares, other than your yet-to-be-born grandkids.

BH 93
"Hints of lactic and residual secondary fermentation aromas should clean up once this is prepared for the bottling. On the palate the plump round and delicious middle weight flavors that flash good minerality on the balanced and palate coating finale. This is awkward but my projected range assumes that it will harmonize once in bottle."

"Domaine de Montille Puligny-Montrachet Let Folatières 1er Cru White) The 2019 Puligny-Montrachet Let Folatières 1er Cru comes from a single plot of vines and is matured in 30% new oak. This sports a very subtle reduction allowing the mineral-rich citric fruit to shine. Plenty of energy on the aromatics and they translate across to the palate. Very well balanced with impressive nerve this fans out wonderfully. Touches of spice linger in the mouth. Very classy." -Vinous

Robert Parker

RP 92
"The 2019 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Folatières bursts with aromas of fresh orchard fruit orange oil freshly baked bread anise and struck match. Medium to full-bodied ample and charming it's bright and precise with an elegantly fleshy core of fruit and a saline finish. " -Robert Parker

Focus On: Burgundy

Burgundy has long been the world's most famous wine region. But, underneath all the prestige, this region can be hard to get to know.

While Burgundy offers many great trophies from top producers in well-known villages like Vosne Romanee and Puligny Montrachet, it also offers excellent values to anyone willing to explore beyond the famous names. Our collection– one of the largest in the U.S. – has plenty of both!

From the very basics of Burgundy's regions and wines to the specific terroirs of individual single vineyards--
everything you need to know about Bourgogne is just a click away!
