Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: Chardonnay 100%.
Tasting notes: Floral and stone fruit aromas combined with intense minerals and a firm structure on the palate. There is tension and energy, yet elegant and delicate with depth and a long harmonious finish.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 96 / 100
"The 2017 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru is showing very well, unfurling in the glass with a pure bouquet of lemons, orange blossom, mandarin oil, crushed chalk and subtle pastry cream. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny and elegant, with a deep but reserved core, tangy acids and a long, mouthwatering finish. This is clearly a terrific Chevalier in the making, but it was still comparatively primary when I tasted it, so it will be interesting to revisit from bottle."
About the Winery: After being founded in the 1750s, in the mid-18th century, the Domaine de Montille century extended over 12 hectares. The family's financial problems meant that Etienne de Montille, the manager at that time, had to abandon certain parcels of land and focus on 3 hectares, mainly in Volnay. With the arrival of Hubert de Montille, Etienne's grandson, the domaine took off in another direction. Like his father, Hubert was a lawyer, however he would go on to lead a double life as a wine grower and a lawyer. He decided to produce his own wines from A to Z. Within a few decades, he would become one of the finest examples in the region, perfectly expressing the terroir of each climat with pure and elegant wines.
Today, the domaine is managed by Etienne and Alix de Montille, Hubert's children who also were originally steered towards a legal career. The domaine now has 20 hectares of vines, including 15 of grand and premier crus, on the best climats of Burgundy, in white and red! Domaine de Montille now produces its wines using biodynamic methodology, perpetuating the tradition of innovation and excellence introduced by Hubert de Montille. Etienne and Alix also created a mini trading structure, Maison Deux Montille Soeur Frère.
