2020 Domaine de Montille

We’re pleased to announce the arrival of the 2020 vintage of Domaine de Montille.    Domaine de Montille is among Burgundy's most iconic estates, with a long and fabled history dating back to 1730’s. The de Montille name is certainly synonymous with the village of Volnay where the family house still sits. 

When Hubert took over in the late 1940’s, more than 90% of the wine in Burgundy was sold to négociants. But he was committed to estate-bottling, and pushed for the highest level of quality and purity. The de Montille style of the “Hubert era” was one of classic, structured wines that were built to age. Although he passed away in 2014 at the age of 84, many of the great wines he made during his career continued to drink magnificently, having aged out of their youthful firmness to blossom into the stuff of legends…gorgeous, mature, terroir-driven Burgundies.

Hubert’s son, Etienne, joined the Domaine in 1983 and immediately displayed the passion and dedication he had learned from his father. By 1995, he was officially co-managing alongside his father but in charge of most of the day-to-day decisions. Like Hubert, he also had another career during this time, working in investment banking until dedicating himself full time to the Domaine in 2001. One of Etienne’s first decisions was to convert the estate to organic farming, starting in 1995. Ten years later, in 2005, they began implementing biodynamic techniques as well, and soon thereafter sought official organic certification, which they earned in 2012. Today, they continue to farm their entire vineyard holdings biodynamically, and like many top vignerons in the region, are committed to the long-term health of their soils and vines. In Etienne's words, "biodynamic farming requires us to be aware of the life cycle of the plants and to embrace energies we cannot explain. We employ biodynamic techniques as a way to support and stimulate the vines, but organic farming is the foundation of what we do."

Domaine de Montille is one of the rare Burgundy estates that excels in both reds and whites, as well as both Cote de Beaune and Cote de Nuits. The evolution of the winery from the 2.5 HA it was when Hubert took over to the breadth and scope of the winery today is one of the great accomplishments in the recent history of this famed region. It couldn’t have been achieved save for the hard work and visionary talents of Etienne de Montille who has ushered this estate to the top echelons of today.

But of course, Etienne is never one to rest on his laurels, and he has set his sights on two other winemaking projects: the first, called Racines, is based in the Santa Rita Hills appellation in Southern California and done in conjunction with his winemaker Brian Sieve as well as Rudolf Peters of Pierre Peters in Champagne.
