Domaine de Montille Beaune “Les Sizies” Premier Cru 2017

R860.00 inc. VAT
"An agreeably free and pure nose reflects notes of violet, plum and dark raspberry along with a whiff of newly turned earth. There is good richness to the generously proportioned middle weight flavors that evidence a subtle minerality on the clean, dusty and sneaky long finish. This moderately firm effort will need at least a few years to unwind but 8 to 10 years should be sufficient to see it at its best." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine de Montille Nuits St. Georges “Aux Thorey” Premier Cru 2017

"Once again there is a beguiling elegance to the pure if spicier aromas of floral-inflected red currant and cherry scents. Once again there is beautiful delineation to the intensely stony medium weight flavors that deliver very fine length on the balanced and complex finish. This too is quite lovely." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine de Montille Pommard “Les Cras” Village 2017

R885.01 inc. VAT
"Moderate reduction is enough to mask the underlying fruit at present. Otherwise there is good density and punch to the sappy medium-bodied flavors that exhibit fine length on the rustic but not particularly austere finale. A quality Pommard villages that is firm but not so much so that it couldn't be enjoyed relatively young." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine de Montille Pommard “Les Pézerolles” Premier Cru 2017

"Super-fresh and distinctly cool aromas are comprised by airy notes of herbal tea, violet, lavender and dark pinot fruit. The racy, intense and beautifully well-detailed middle weight flavors exhibit ample minerality on the delicate and refined finish that delivers excellent length. Lovely stuff." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine de Montille Volnay “En Champans” Premier Cru 2017

R1,860.01 inc. VAT
"A much earthier mix of red and dark currant, violet and discreet herbal tea nuances slides into the supple lighter weight flavors that are a bit more elegant than usual, all wrapped in a nicely complex and persistent finish. This is certainly good but 2017 is not a great vintage for this wine." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine de Montille Volnay “La Carelle Sous Chapelle” Premier Cru 2017

R1,405.00 inc. VAT
"A deft touch of wood sets off the bright red fruit, lavender and discreet spice-inflected aromas. The sleek, elegant and well-detailed middle weight flavors possess a refined mouth feel before concluding in a more obviously mineral-driven finish that has just a touch of youthful austerity to it. This lacy effort is lovely and very Volnay in character." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine de Montille Volnay “Taillepieds” Premier Cru 2017

"A cool, pure and ultra-floral nose blends notes of both red and dark cherry, anise, sandalwood and a hint of herbal tea. The firm, serious and overtly mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors possess excellent verve while culminating in a youthfully austere and impressively long finish. This is clearly very firm yet it's a bit less compact than it usually is but with that said, plenty of patience will still be necessary." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine de Montille Vosne-Romanée “Les Malconsorts” Premier Cru 2014 Magnum

R7,065.00 inc. VAT
"A discreet application of oak sets off the openly floral and spicy red currant, plum, sandalwood and Asian tea scents. There is impressive mid-palate density to the muscular and notably powerful medium weight plus flavors that seem to be constructed on a firm base of minerality, all wrapped in strikingly persistent finish that is austere but well-balanced thanks to the abundant level of sappy dry extract. Like the Clos du Roi, this is explicitly built-to-age and don't waste your precious bottles by drinking them too young." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Maison Deux Montille Montagny “Les Coères” Premier Cru 2017

"Pungent notes of matchstick character and pear liqueur give way to nicely rich and caressing barely medium weight flavors that possess better vibrancy on the mildly rustic, clean and dry finale. This too should drink well shortly after release." - Allen Meadows, Burghound
