2018 Bourgogne Rouge, Domaine de Montille, Burgundy, France

Somm Picks

OVERVIEW

The 2018 Domaine de Montille Rouge is a delicious, red fruit blend of pinot parcels from 1er cru Volnay and Puligny Montrachet vineyards and is of a higher quality than most entry level Bourgogne Rouge wines. More care is also taken in the wine-making, in the 2018 vintage the domaine used one third whole bunch fermentation adding great freshness and structure to the wine. This is our pick for the best Bourgogne rouge in our collection.

FOOD PAIRING INSPIRATION

This serious and structured Bourgogne rouge pairs more like a Volnay, for obvious reasons, we drink this wine with sweet meats, game birds, rabbit, brie and camembert.

VINTAGE AND WINEMAKING

Rated as an outstanding vintage by Robert Parker's wine advocate.

Biodynamic, produced from grapes in the Les Longbois lieu-dit and parcels in Puligny Montrachet. 33% whole bunch in 2018.

PRODUCER NOTES

A historic winemaking family in Burgundy with roots going back to the 17th century, Domaine de Montille has always been at the forefront of modernisation in this area and was one of the first Burgundy families to take the brave steps of organics ('95) and biodynamics ('05). Known for their use of whole bunch clusters, the wines of the Domaine are remarkably fresh and lively and given well to bottle age.

Considered one of a handful of elite producers for wines from Pommard and Volnay these are highly sought after wines that don't only improve in bottle with age but also increase in price, especially in exceptional vintages.

As of today, the domaine benefits from 35 hectares of vines, of which 75% are Premiers or Grands Crus from both Côtes.
