Domaine Hubert de Montille
Volnay “Taillepieds”  
1er Cru Red barrel
Score: 91-93
Tasted: Apr 15, 2018
Drink: 2028+
Issue: 70


Note: 100% whole clusters
Producer note: Etienne de Montille was not available at the time of my visit and thus I do not have his views on the 2016 vintage. I was however able to taste through the entire range of wines that include the Château de Puligny-Montrachet (see below) and the négociant whites made under the Deux Montille label, the reviews for which will appear in Issue 71. The quality here was very good in 2016 though generally better from the Côte de Nuits. With the exception of the Bourgogne, all the wines were vinified with relatively high percentages of whole clusters that ranged from one-third to 100%. I indicate the percentage for each wine in parentheses. In another change the Rugiens has been rebaptized as “Hubert” and, as was the case in 2015, it will probably be sold with the Malconsorts “Christiane” in a commemorative two-pack in honor of Etienne’s parents.

Tasting note: This too is intensely floral on the restrained, ultra-fresh and pure nose that blends both red and dark berries together with slightly exotic nuances of spice and tea. The mouth feel of the medium-bodied and overtly mineral-driven flavors is at once refined but powerful with excellent underlying tension suffusing the moderately austere, firm and built-to-age finish. This should be first-rate in time but patience is required.
