Bourgogne Blanc "Le Clos du Château", Dom. de Montille - 2021

Item # 42512 750mL

The 5 hectares vineyard of Le Clos du Château sits in front of the Château de Puligny and is entirely enclosed by walls (a true clos). Remarkably situated on the border of Puligny vineyards, this terroir shows in this Bourgogne Blanc which over-delivers for the appellation. Domaine de Montille is among Burgundy's most iconic estates, with a long and fabled history dating back to 1730’s. While the de Montille name is certainly synonymous with the village of Volnay where the family house still sits, the original historic estate consisted of 25 hectares spread throughout the Côte d’Or, including parcels in the famed Grand Crus of Le Musigny and Les Bonnes Mares.

Staff Pick Notes

With its myriad appellations and classifications, Burgundy can seem unwieldy and complicated. And that's because it is. For those willing to take the plunge, however, rewards await. One way to begin deciphering this enigma is by finding good producers. Domaine de Montille dates back to the 1700s, but has earned a stellar reputation over the last 70 years through the efforts of Hubert de Montille and his son Etienne. They rebuilt, expanded, and revitalized their holdings, even converting to biodynamics in 2005. Their entry-level Bourgogne Blanc is an incredible value. A kind of baby Puligny-Montrachet, it lures you in with aromas of lemon cream, white peach, wet stone, and a hint of oak, while the palate is fresh and focused with pear, quince, and a lovely mineral streak.

Glossary

Burgundy

The range of wine styles offered in Burgundy rivals that of any other region. In Chablis, Chardonnay is left unoaked to produce lean, crisp, steely wines with incredible acidity - a far cry from the vanilla-oak bombs that so many consumers associate with this grape. Fans of rich, unctuous, and well-oaked Chardonnay will enjoy Chassagne-Montrachet, whose age-worthy offerings offer all the fatness of a California wine, yet retain a very Burgundian, mineral-driven core and great acidity....

Chardonnay

From Champagne to Chablis, it's hard (not to mention unpleasant) to avoid this famous white variety. During a huge popularity surge beginning in the late 1980s, Chardonnay plantings have increased dramatically -- not only in California's wine country, with which the variety is nearly synonymous, but also in Burgundy (its original, Old World home) and just about everywhere else in the winemaking world. It is a flexible, eager-to-please grape, responding well to just about anything a winemaker...
