Case 6 x 75cl £315.60
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.more

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.
