Deux Montille

Hubert de Montille was one of the legends of Burgundy. His small domaine in Volnay had an extremely loyal band of followers. Since his son, Etienne, took over the reins the domaine has changed almost unrecognisably and is now 7 times the size with vineyards all over the Côte d’Or, including some very precious Malconsorts in Vosne-Romanée. The evolution has been as impressive as it has been dramatic. Working closely alongside Etienne is Brian Sieve, the Californian winemaker with a great feel for making refined, elegant wines. Together the two also manage a small négoce label called Maison Deux Montille which focusses on making steely, crystalline white wines from affordable appellations. The range makes an excellent foil for the mainly red wines under the Domaine label.

    From what were once the vines from the Château de Puligny property that Étienne bought a couple of years ago comes this delicious and intense generic that is like a mini Puligny. Precise, focused with a lithe undercurrent that carries the ripe fruit flavours to the finish. Drink from 2019.

    We have just shipped the 2012 St-Romain `Le Jarron` from Deux Montille, the progressive side project of Etienne and Alix de Montille. Talented Brian Sieve, who looks after the day to day running of the domaine wines, is also much more involved than previously and to very positive effect. We pulled the cork on this in the Tasting Room last week and it showed beautifully. St-Romain lies in the valley behind Meursault and Monthélie, just beyond Auxey-Duresses. The soil is incredibily chalky and stony but `Le Jarron` is a terrific south/south-west facing vineyard that gets good exposure which means perfect ripeness as well as lovely minerality. This example showed a mouthwatering mix of creaminess and saline minerals, with tension, purity and length. The oak is perfectly balanced and totally unobtrusive whilst the energy in the wine will make it a great food match for the right dish. If you`re looking for a classy alternative to St-Aubin then look no further. Drink now.
