Description

In 2003, the sister-and-brother team of Alix and Étienne de Montille created the micro-négociant Deux Montilles. Their goal is to produce predominantly white wines from reliable, top-notch growers in the Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise to balance the prestigious, mostly red, vineyard holdings of Domaine de Montille. This boutique winemaking project is a natural extension of their common experience in Burgundy.

As the children of Volnay legend Hubert de Montille, Alix and Étienne undoubtedly have wine in their veins, yet each also has their own independent accomplishments to be proud of. Étienne has taken over management of the family estate, Domaine de Montille, and served as Director of the Château de Puligny-Montrachet. Alix brings her vast world-class winemaking experience, honed over the years producing white Burgundy both for her family and other well-known properties in the area.

Review

Here there is a whiff of volatile acidity that is sufficiently subtle not to significantly detract from the ripe aromas of plum and earth. The mouthfeel of the slightly bigger and richer flavours is also quite suave while offering solid length though the finish is a bit one-dimensional.

Tasting Profile

Palate
Alix purchases fruit from growers only with whom she has been working for years. The de Montilles control all crop levels, and the harvest date, and pick the grapes according to the high standards of Domaine de Montille. All the wines are produced in their recently renovated cellars, located in the famous winegrowing village of Meursault. Deux Montille’s wines represent a stylistic approach to winemaking that is directly in line with the heritage and pedigree of their legendary family’s estate, namely purity of fruit, moderate alcohol levels, and mineral-driven, textured wines.
