Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Domaine de Montille, Corton Clos du Roi, Grand Cru, 2009

One of, if not THE, great vineyards of Corton's hill, aged in 30% percent new oak and half of it was fermented with whole bunches, giving great depth, structure and complexity. This may be one of the more brooding wines of the cellar but its stellar potential is clear, rich, intense svelte but muscle-bound, sweet asian spices, currant, bilberry, black cherry and bramble fruit with hints of kirsch and savoury touches of mineral, powerful but sweet as a nut on the huge finish.

Neal Martin, Vinous
The 2017 Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru has a complex nose of dark berry fruit mixed with touches of meat juice and spicebox, slightly musky, with neatly integrated oak. The poised palate offers grainy tannins, crisp and crunchy red berry fruit laced with orange peel, and gentle grip toward a finely proportioned finish that lingers beautifully. Bon vin. Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2017 tasting.

Domaine de Montille

Etienne is one of Burgundy's great purists, his long-lived wines may need time but they are some of the most honest and terroir-driven wines in Burgundy. The wines are fermented using all or partial whole bunch vinification depending on the vintage, élévage is long and slow in their cold cellars and percentages of new oak are low, rarely more than 50% even for Malconsorts. From some of the most vivid, intense Beaune's there are to perfumed, stylish Volnays and silky Vosnes Romanee, Etienne makes a borad range of some of Burgundy's most polished wines. The Domaine's policy on white wines is to pick as early as possible, as soon as the fruit has just approached ripeness, resulting in tense, fine wines with alcohols rarely more than 13%
