Corton 'Clos du Roi' is a Grand Cru in and of itself. It has the material, the complexity, the touch and the profoundness required. It is remarkable to find in the wine its geographical positioning, borrowing as much from the Cote de Nuits (complex aromatics and superior tannin quality) as from the Cote de Beaune (freshness, vibrancy and firmness of material). Domaine de Montille is known to craft wines with great aromatic purity, always favoring balance and elegance over power and extraction. The wines are classic expressions of Burgundy, produced in the most natural way possible and possessing an impressive ability to age, as the family believes only time can reveal the true potential of the greatest wines. The domaine's current style remains faithful to Hubert's natural and idealistic approach, which demanded considerable patience while waiting for appropriate drinking windows for certain vintages. Etienne, however, has taken up the task to bring greater aromatic expression and silkier and more unctuous textures to the reds, allowing them to drink earlier, without compromising their ability to age. The domaine is known in Burgundy, among others such as Arlot, DRC, Dujac and Leroy, to regularly vinify using a significant proportion of whole clusters, varying by cuvee and by vintage.
