Affordable White Burgundy

I first met Hubert Montille in 1993 when working at The Burgundy Wine Company in New York City. His wines left a lasting impression on me. Elegance defined. Exactly what Burgundy is supposed to be. After Hubert passed in 2014 his children Etienne & Alix took over. They are continuing the great tradition at Domaine de Montille. This wine, from the négociant side of the business Domaine Deux Montille, from St Romain, is quite stunning and we have it at more than $10 Dollars LESS per bottle than anyone else on line.

The commune of Saint-Romain is the ultimate ‘off-the-beaten-path’ appellation, situated west of Auxey-Duresses quite far from the main escarpment that runs through the Côte de Nuits/Beaune. Saint-Romain sits in a mountainous amphitheater, with vineyards arrayed in a jumble of exposures. The main distinction of Saint-Romain is altitude: Some of its vineyards reach to 400 meters, considerably higher than its more famous neighbors to the east, and these cooler sites still containing the classic Burgundy mix of marl and limestone produce very linear, fine-tuned, aromatic styles of Chardonnay. Prior to gaining AOC status in 1947, Saint-Romain was part of the broader ‘Hautes Côtes de Beaune’ catchall AOC, which covered all the higher-elevation sites above the ‘main’ côte.

This is a Classic St Romain. The nose is generous with copious ripe fruit then contrasted with bright citrus, kiwi and wet stones. The palate is beautifully balanced, harmonious and poised with hints of lemon meringue pie, butter crust and then a perfect amount of acidity. The weight in the mouth is satisfying but not heavy and the finish is quite long and complex. This wine has real class.
