Known for exquisite Pinot Noir wines from Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits, Domaine de Montille is a Burgundy producer with a history in the winemaking community that dates back to the mid-19th century. First working as a resource to négociants, the Montille family sold both its grapes and eventually some of its property in the early 1900s, substantially decreasing its scope. It wasn’t until Hubert de Montille inherited the last of the property – six acres – in Volnay that things began to change. Hubert vinified his first vintage in 1947. With time, attention and investments, the domaine evolved into one of the most influential in Burgundy. Parcels were consistently purchased along the Côte d’Or, and by 2011, the property reached 50 acres. Even more impressive, the majority of the new acquisitions were premier or grand cru vineyards. Montille’s most desired wines come from the famous Corton, Pommard, Vosne-Romanee Aux Malconsorts; it has also expanded to include patches of Chardonnay in Le Cailleret, one of Puligny-Montrachet’s choicest vineyards. The family’s expansion has not been limited to the domaine; on the contrary, Hubert’s son Étienne purchased Château de Puligny-Montrachet in 2012, and he and hi daughter Alix also own Maison Deux Montille, a white Burgundy house.
