Narvaux was hit badly by the hail and as a consequence this is substantially reduced in availability. The team have worked hard here and the lemon-scented, pure and cleansing wine that results is a tribute to their efforts. On the palate, this shows good fresh acidity as well as depth and density.

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.
