Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, De Montille - 2021

This wine is immediately racy, imperial. The attack is frank, straightforward, almost virile. The palate is powerful, deep, ample, rich but very structured and impresses with its density and elegance. It is above all its length that expresses the Grand Cru character. The finish is persistent and saline. This wine requires 5 to 8 years of cellaring to fully express itself.

Purchased in 2004, the 1.02 ha plot was at the time planted with Pinot Noir under the Corton Pougets appellation. It seemed to the estate that the soil, made up of yellow marl, light brown clay and fine gravel, was more suited to the production of great white wines. The decision was taken in 2005 to overplant the vines with Chardonnay in the upper part, which was 35 years old, and the lower part, which was too old, was pulled up and replanted. Organic cultivation since 1995, biodynamic since 2005.


The harvest is entirely manual. After a light settling, the musts are put into barrels, mainly 600 l. and also 228 l., where the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation takes place. 5 to 20% of the barrels are new, with wood coming mainly from the Allier region, with long and light toasting. The first racking takes place after about a year of maturing in wood, and the second phase (4 to 6 months) in stainless steel tanks then begins.

The Domaine De Montille has been established in Volnay since the middle of the 18th century. Today, it operates a 20-hectare vineyard (mainly Premiers and Grands Crus) on the Côte de Beaune, but also in the Côte de Nuits, on very prestigious climats. Hubert de Montille has written some very beautiful pages, as early as the 1960s. He had a lot of work to do in order to give back some scope to this property, which had shrunk over the years, while carrying out two activities (he was a great lawyer!). And it is this perseverance that Hubert passed on to his children. First Étienne, then Alix. Then he left... The arrival of Etienne marked the "change in continuity". There is no question of questioning the values of the house, those that have made it one of the most sought after in Burgundy. But to the authenticity, purity, ageing capacity and elegance of the estate's wines, he will bring a note of charm, the velvet of the texture and the touch of whole grapes. It is also he who will bring the estate into the organic era. Thus, after the total abandonment of chemical fertilisers and herbicides in 1985 thanks to his father Hubert, then of synthetic fungicides and insecticides in 1995 for the passage to organic farming (certified by Ecocert in 2012), he converted the estate to biodynamic farming in 2005.
