Expert Ratings:

Decanter 93 / 100 
“En Champans is on a steep slope and combines three different soil types: clay, limestone and sand. This is quite a firm, grippy, savoury style of Volnay with lots of sap and grip, some appealing floral scents, red cherry and bramble fruit and a combination of 50% whole bunches and 30% new wood. Drinking Window: 2026-2034.” - Tim Atkin

Burghound.com 94 / 100 
“Once again there is liqueur-like character to the aromas of red cherry, passion fruit, spice and pretty floral elements. There is excellent volume to the caressing and palate coating flavors that are refined yet powerful on the very serious, structured and built-to-age finale. This is excellent but patience strongly recommended.”

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 93 / 100 
“The 2018 Volnay 1er Cru Les Champans is muscular and more introverted than the series of Beaune premiers crus that proceeded it, unwinding with a deep-pitched bouquet of cassis, smoked meats and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, firm and muscular, the raw materials are promising, but the wine was a little inscrutable.”

Vinous 93 / 100 
“The 2018 Volnay Les Champans 1er Cru includes 50% whole cluster and has a much more floral bouquet than the Mitans, with wilted rose petal percolating through the red fruit. The well-balanced palate is tannic on the entry. The brisk, terse finish indicates that it is in for the long haul. I like the salinity here. A rather uncompromising but satisfying/challenging Volnay.” - Neal Martin

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.
