2008 Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru, Domaine Hubert de Montille

Domaine de Montille's parcel is in the lower part of this great vineyard near the road and, therefore, just opposite Bressandes. A very expressive wine, with notes of Christmas spice, flowers, red fruit and woodsmoke. Real density and vineyard concentration on the palate, with an intense, lively finish. The wines of Corton are undervalued and, in the right hands, every bit as fine as the best of the Côtes de Nuits.

Domaine de Montille

Charismatic Etienne de Montille has stewarded the family domaine since taking responsibility in 1995. With an enviable selection of vineyards, careful winemaking with the use of whole bunch altered to suit the vintage, and sensitive élévage, it’s no surprise that this estate continues to rise towards the top. With a cellar overseen by the talented, affable American Brian Sieve and his own son joining the family business, Etienne is doing all the right things to ensure the wines thrive.
