Maison Deux Montille Soeur Frère Saint-Romain '08

Montille’s family is deeply embedded in Burgundy and has been since the 1750s.  We are pleased to share that this outstanding domaine’s current generation, Étienne and Alix, have been able to continue to progress and grow, from a winery that was once radical for being estate-driven during a time when selling fruit was more profitable.  

In continuance of growth and progression, Étienne and Alix created 'Deux Montille Sœur-Frère', a negociant house devoted primarily to white wines. "All our Sœur-Frère grapes are rigorously selected, harvested and vinified with the same know-how and philosophy as our domaine grapes," explains Alix. Since 2006 she has taken over responsibility for the domaine's whites.

Saint Romain, is tucked in the Côte de Beaune and surrounded by cliffs, lending to both distinctively high elevation sites for Burgundy as well as a diversity of soils such as limestone, marl and clay, perfectly suitable for Chardonnay.  This bottling comes from 20% of the lieu-dit "Sous Roches" and 80% from “Jarrons." The vines are about 30 years old. 

We have always encouraged you in the past to cellar Montille's wines, as they truly develop so gracefully with age, which is why we are thrilled to offer a 2008 vintage this month! This wine shows incredible depth and precision.  This is a wine focused more on freshness and elegance than power and breadth.  Between high standards in farming and meticulous vinification methods, the wine is drinking wonderfully, as time has proven.  Citrus and apple marries into striking minerality, with such beautifully detailed flavors that have developed through into a soft, lush wine with a clean and persistent finish.  Highly impressive!
