Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Domaine de Montille, Meursault, St Christophe, 2020

A welcome flinty note helps keep the tension to the inner nutty richness on show here. Powerful, but on the more agile and taut side of the spectrum - a tannic crunch and grip adds further structure and balance to the wine. Relatively open but this does have depth and encourages a sense that there is more to come.

Neal Martin, Vinous

A blend of two parcels (Castet and Petit Charron), the 2020 Meursault "St. Christophe" sported quite a bit of reduction on the nose. The palate is well balanced, the 20% new oak neatly integrated, orange cordial and a touch of mango towards the finish. Fine length. Closure: Diam

Domaine de Montille

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%
