Region Corton-Charlemagne

Corton-Charlemagne has a striking gold robe, even in its youth, and a remarkably generous nose of cinnamon, walnuts, pepper, tropical fruit, and amber. It has a soft mouthfeel that is enlivened by bright acidity, as well as a naturally high alcohol content that makes it quite powerful, concentrated, and long.

Winery DOMAINE DE MONTILLE

Domaine de Montille is a top Côte de Beaune domaine renowned for producing some of the purest, most elegant and harmonious expressions of Pinot Noir to be found in Burgundy. Established in Volnay in 1951 by Hubert de Montille, the majority of production was sold in bulk to négociants for many years. Over time the domaine acquired additional parcels in Volnay and Pommard with more recent purchases in Corton, Beaune and Vosne Romanee. Today the domaine is run by Hubert’s son Etienne, who adheres to a traditional winemaking philosophy. Built to age, the wines take at least five years to begin showing their full potential.
