Domaine de Montille -Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru " Aux Thorey" - 2015 - 1500 ml
WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“The 2015 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Aux Thorey is 100% whole cluster fruit with 45% new oak. There was just a slight reduction on the nose to contend with, though the palate is well structured with good backbone, fine acidity thanks to the limestone soil, with pretty blackberry and redcurrant fruit towards the precise finish. Excellent.” 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.
