  • The storied Domaine de Montille traces its history in Burgundy back to the 1730s. Hubert de Montille took the helm in 1947 with a drive and passion that eventually earned the family a place in the upper echelon of Burgundy estates.
  • Following in his father's footsteps, Etienne de Montille grew the family holdings to 35 hectares and in 1995, took the bold step of transitioning the vineyards to organic and biodynamic farming.
  • One of the rare Burgundy estates that excels in reds and whites in both the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits, along with many more sectors of the region with its sister petit negociant project, Maison de Montille (formerly known as DEux Montilles). 
  • The winemaking at de Montille has evolved over the years, and the resulting wines are less austere in their youth than in the Hubert era. Today's wines are fresh and elegant with terroir-transparency and a structure that is built to last.

REGION: Burgundy

APPELLATION: Pommard 1er Cru

VARIETALS: Pinot Noir

VINEYARD: Located in the northern part of the appellation, De Montille's parcel of Pézerolles sits in the middle of the 1er Cru, the most revered part of the vineyard, which was once referred to as "Le Clos des Pézerolles." Interestingly, the name is derived from the ancient word for pois-chiche (chickpea). It is assumed that these were once cultivated on this terrain.

SOIL: Sandy topsoil on limestone

VINIFICATION: Fruit from Hubert's old clos saw 100% whole fermentation, while fruit from the middle aged vineyards was 50% whole cluster and the youngest vines were destemmed. Regarding sulfur, reds have the following: 45-65 mg/l total SO2, 20-25 mg/l free SO2.

AGING: Aged 14-18 months in barrel (30% new oak), then assembled and aged for additional months in stainless steel tank.

PRODUCTION: 3300 bottles

NOTES: Pézerolles is often thought of as an outlier because it is the most finesseful of the Pommard 1er Crus. Even though it sits on the other side of the village from Volnay, it's floral, delicate, and graceful profile is often described as being Volnay-esque.
