Join Stannary Wine’s Burgundy Buyer, Jason Haynes and Master Sommelier, Gearoid Devaney MS live from the tasting room at Domaine de Montille in Meursault. Étienne de Montille will host this one-off tasting and will take us through six of his wines.
When Étienne joined the family business in the 1990s it was a very different operation to the bustling, grandiose one it is today. Back then his legendary father was producing a handful of ultra classical, long-living Volnays and Pommards from their house and cellars in Volnay. Today the domaine totals 20 hectares and includes vineyards in Vosne, Vougeot, Nuits, Corton, Beaune, Meursault and Puligny.
Étienne’s right-hand man in the cellars is Brian Sieve, a Californian Burgundian with a love of terroir. Together, in their spacious cellars in Meursault, they craft whites of rapier-like vitality and reds with grace, finesse and whole-bunch freshness.
