WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“The 2016 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru has an attractive bouquet with lemon curd, dried apricot and chalk dust scents that gain intensity with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a fine line of acidity, fresh and tensile with a touch of salinity on the finish. There is something refined and understated about this Corton-Charlemagne and as such I would afford it three to five years in bottle.” Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
The domaine sat on a veritable treasure, which at the time, was not recognised for its inherent value. Musigny, Bonnes Mares, Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru 'les Amoureuses'...in total, 12 hectares of magnificent terroir, planted with Pinot Noir in the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune. Though today these parcels make wine lovers and winemakers swoon, they were sold off as and when the family's financial situation dictated. Little by little, the ancestors chipped away at the domaine. If the family tradition demanded that the men should embrace a career in law, the arrival of Hubert de Montille marked a turning of the page. He decided to stop this erosion and take over the Domaine - which had already been reduced to its smallest size of barely 3 hectares.
