    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Domaine de Montille, Nuits St Georges, Aux Thorey, 1er Cru, 2020

    A fine, tight, streamlined wine of fresh dark fruit and great mineral spark. Racy flavours of red and black cherries; this is both suave and vibrant - not the deepest or the most powerful but a very even-keeled Nuits. 50% whole bunch fermentation.

    ABV:
    12.5%
    90-92/100
    Neal Martin, Vinous
    The 2020 Nuits Saint-Georges Aux Thorey 1er Cru, which has 50% whole bunch, has a fleshy ripe and generous bouquet with macerated small red cherries and raspberry coulis. The palate is medium-bodied with soft and fleshy tannins, quite Vosne-like in style with a rounded finish. It just needs a little more tension. Closure: Diam

    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%
