RECOMMENDATIONS FOR YOU

Image of wine Bourgogne Rouge
BUY
TASTING NOTES

If the ability to make a good Bourgogne Rouge is the mark of a quality winemaker, this is a case in point. Very juicy with purity of raspberry and red cherry fruit and good weight. With freshness and lift and a crunchiness to the finish, this is very moreish Bourgogne Rouge.

TASTING NOTES

More restrained than the Perrières, there are lots of summery aromas of raspberries and red cherries with a delicate hint of lavender. The palate shows delicacy and depth, with chilled blueberries and blackcurrant fruit and crisp tannins. Drink from 2015.

TASTING NOTES

There is an enticing spiciness on the nose here, perhaps more sweet spice than savoury with some red earthy notes and a pleasing hint of cedar. The palate is built around a really good concentration of blackcurrant fruit with a delicate, restrained structure. Drink from 2015.

TASTING NOTES

Black fruits on the nose here, with a robust, sturdy confident, almost strutting style. On the palate there is extra finesse in the tannins and an additional layer of density. Drink from 2016.

Domaine de Montille

In Stock

Case 6 x 75cl £315.60

Image of wine Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Les Thorey

TASTING NOTES

This is a delightful, textured Nuits that appeals with its charm and fragrance rather than its grip and muscle. In 2012, there is of course an extra degree of concentration but the fruit still has a certain plushness, red in tone with accompanying spice and never ponderous or heavy. Drink from 2017.

TASTING NOTES

From a 0.44ha holding, high up on the slopes above Beaune. This is undeniable evidence of the quality of whites in Beaune when in the right hands. Ample stonefruits on the nose usher in a wine of great amiability, with a solid core of fruit on the palate again reflecting the generosity of the vintage. Then there is a transition...

TASTING NOTES

Pézerolles was another vineyard that was hit hard by the hail and the resulting wine has far more punch and masculinity to it than is habitually the case. There are lovely liquorice notes alongside the pepper but less perfume and fragrance than in the past. A fine, soothing baritone rather than a sprightly young tenor. Drink from 2017.

TASTING NOTES

This is a powerful, stirring wine, ripe and rounded in character. The exposure of the vineyard renders the decision on timing of harvest particularly important here and the retention of good balancing acidity suggests the team got this spot on. No new oak is used at all on this wine in an attempt to keep things as taut and pure...

Domaine de Montille is one of Burgundy’s greatest estates. The wines are made for ageing but in recent years, since Hubert’s son Etienne has taken over, the domaine has moved towards expressing greater aromatic potential in the wines. Recent purchases at the domaine have increased the number of wines which make for a serious and detailed overview of the region.

The Domaine has moved progressively towards organic and now biodynamic methods working in closer harmony with nature. The approach in the cellar remains traditional though in the last few years, since Hubert’s son Étienne took over the reins, there has been a focus on bringing greater aromatic expression to the red wines. The wines still benefit from ageing and develop an abundance of complexity as they mature.

In recent years, purchases in Beaune, Corton and the Côte de Nuits have significantly extended the vineyard holdings.
