Domaine de Montille Corton Charlemagne 2011


SKU 06190


For us, because we love whites with crispness, minerality and tension, we are confident to say the 2011 vintage is a great vintage for whites. The grapes were very healthy, and the pressing, settling and fermenting unfolded easily, thanks to the generous acidity levels. The qualities found in the reds are just as pertinents for the whites. Fresh, mineral and floral with notes of citrus and white flowers, the aromas are clean and precise. The palates are vibrant, with a nice combination of tension and fluidity that deliver a texture that is less thick and less fleshy give more profound flavor than the immediately preceding vintages. Thanks to this, it is easy to read the terroirs and because of the excellent natural equilibrium of the wines, the 2011 whites possess good aging potential that is, in our opinion, superior to the three prior vintages. They are wines to drink but also to cellar for another ten years.

Wine AdvocateTasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. Domaine de Montille's 2011 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru has a similar nose to Louis Latour's: austere and minerally, more tertiary in style than Louis Jadot's Corton-Charlemagne with a light marine influence that becomes more prominent with aeration. The palate is quite effervescent on the entry with orange zest and lime, although it does not quite possess the complexity of the previous two wines and feels smudged on the finish.
