Viticulture

This sloping terroir is quite chalky at the top of the plot, with a light brown soil. At the bottom, the soil is more clayey, with a brown and reddish colour. It is a major cru of Volnay. The vines of the Domaine de Montille go up the whole hillside and benefit from an optimal sunshine. The name "Champans" comes from the association of two words, "champ" and "pans", meaning slope. Organic cultivation since 1995, biodynamic since 2005.

Oenology

33% whole bunch vinification. Aged with 25% new wood.

Domain
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.
