Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: Chardonnay 100%
Tasting notes: Dense, aromatic and fruity nose. Lovely balance of flavors on the palate with a very satisfying long finish.
"The wine is rich and spicy, with aromas of ripe apple and citrus on the attack, then marzipan and butter on the palate. The texture is broad but still balanced by fresh acidity that carries this to a beautiful, lingering finish."
"The 2019 Puligny-Montrachet Let Folatières 1er Cru comes from a single plot of vines and is matured in 30% new oak. This sports a very subtle reduction, allowing the mineral-rich citric fruit to shine. Plenty of energy on the aromatics, and they translate across to the palate. Very well balanced with impressive nerve, this fans out wonderfully. Very classy."
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 92/100
"The 2019 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Folatières bursts with aromas of fresh orchard fruit, orange oil, freshly baked bread, anise and struck match. Medium to full-bodied, ample and charming, it's bright and precise, with an elegantly fleshy core of fruit and a saline finish."
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.
