WHAT THE WINEMAKERS ARE SAYING"The 2016 Pommard 1er Cru Les Pezerolles is one-third whole cluster fruit. Around half the vineyard suffered frost damage in this year. There is more red fruit here than other cuvées from de Montille: raspberry, wild strawberry and a touch of Bing cherry. The palate is well balanced with fine and slightly chalky tannin. " 92 points, Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
Domaine de Montille sits on 17 hectares, mainly in Côte de Beaune, although some fine wines from Nuits-Saint-Georges and Vosne-Romanée have been integrated.
The Domaine was created in the 1750s. It sat on a veritable treasure, in total, 12 hectares of magnificent terroir, planted with Pinot Noir in the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune. When Hubert de Montille took over in the 1950s, the family Domaine had been reduced to its smallest size of barely 3 hectares. In 1983, Étienne started working at the Domaine. He asserted his style and philosophy: biodynamic farming, whole cluster fermentation to add aromatics and silkier wines with less austerity. All the while, he remained true to his vision: authenticity, purity, elegance and balance. In 2011, the Domaine counted 20 hectares of vines, of which 75% were Premiers or Grands Crus from both Côtes.
The idea of minimal intervention speaks very clearly to the team when it comes to their terroir. There was total abandonment of chemical fertilizers and herbicides in 1985, and then fungicides and synthetic insecticides in 1995 before switching to organic, biodynamic in 2005. Finally, the domain became Ecocert Bio certified in 2012.
