Domaine de Montille dinner

Dinner at Neighborhood with Domaine de Montille.  Étienne de Montille was in attendance.

2013 Deux Montille Bourgogne Chardonnay - toasty, oaky, some minerals.  Good acidity.

2013 Deux Montille Saint-Romain Le Jarron - lovely toasty notes, very fragrant, nice citrus notes with minerals.  Good acidity.

2013 Domaine de Montille Meursault Les Narvaux - more minerals, even better and more fragrant.  Softer on the palate than expected, without too much acidity.

2013 Domaine de Montille Bourgogne Pinot Noir - good fruit, a little sous bois and eucalyptus.

2013 Domaine de Montille Beaune 1er Cru Les Sizies - the fruit was somehow more muted, with more eucalyptus, leather, and animal notes.

2005 Domaine de Montille Corton-Charlemagne - very floral, so elegant, almost a little caramel.

2001 Domaine de Montille Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Caillerets, en magnum - this was so beautiful, with sweet and creamy corn, almost like corn ice cream, and nice toasty notes.  Some ripeness on the palate here.

2005 Domaine de Montille Volnay 1er Cru Les Champans - nice leather notes, nice and fragrant.  Reasonable concentration and tannins.

1999 Domaine de Montille Volnay 1er Cru Les Taillepieds - more spices, more mature, with black fruits, cedar, and almost a little caramelized.  Richer and really beautiful.

1995 Domaine de Montille Pommard 1er Cru Les Rugiens - so fragrant, with animal, leather, meaty, and a little smoky notes.  Really nice and sweet fruit.  Also a little metallic and iron.  'Rugiens' derives from rouge, which refers to the red soil full of iron oxide.

Full post on dinner is here.
