Regular price £40.30
Maison de Montille
Domaine de Montille was properly established in 1947 when prominent Dijon lawyer Hubert de Montille inherited 2.5 hectares in Volnay, later adding further parcels in Volnay, Pommard and Puligny. Hubert’s style was famously austere: low alcohol, high tannin and sublime in maturity. His son, Etienne, joined him in 1983, before becoming the senior winemaker, taking sole charge from 1995 and converting the estate to organics, and then to biodynamics in 2005. He also made the house style more generous and open, focusing on the use of whole bunches for the reds. La Maison de Montille, funded in 2033 by Etienne and his sister Alix, is the négoce arm of the Domaine.
