Domaine de Montille Bourgogne Blanc (2014)

New

 In the glass, it’s a reflective straw-gold with hint of green at the rim, with aromas of yellow apple, quince, lime blossom, citrus pith, white mushroom, fresh cream, and crushed stones. The palate is medium to medium-plus in body and absolutely electric, lifted by fresh acidity and still tightly coiled—this is a wine that will benefit from some time in the cellar, about 3-5 years, to broaden and deepen further.

    First off, not all “Bourgogne”-level wines are created equal. Many top producers (Coche-Dury, Roulot, Roumier, and today’s, Domaine de Montille) make examples that blow away more highly classified wines due to site selection, farming, age of vines, and winemaking talent. That said, I often notice Burgundians referring to their Bourgogne Blanc/Rouge bottlings as “generic” wines.

    They really need to come up with a better word, and not just for marketing purposes: Although many Bourgogne-labeled wines do indeed taste generic, there’s nothing generic about this Bourgogne Blanc from Domaine de Montille. As one sip makes abundantly clear, this tastes more like really good Puligny-Montrachet or Meursault, so please, put that other word out of your mind. Let’s go instead with “flagship Bourgogne” to describe this 2014, because, as we’ve said many times before, the best measure of a great producer is its “littlest” wine. In this regard, de Montille’s Bourgogne Blanc is a best-foot-forward from a legendary family estate. Sourced from just outside Puligny and representing one of Burgundy’s greatest white wine vintages in recent memory, its combination of pedigree and price is special. Not generic, special. Don’t miss it!
