Wines from Nuits-Saint-Georges comes from the two communes of Nuits-Saint-Georges and Premeaux-Prissé. This terroir, both large and complex, is primarily planted with Pinot Noir. At the northern end of the appellations, the wines are fine, more aromatically generous and more supple, recalling those of the neighboring village of Vosne-Romanée. In the south, going toward Premeaux, the wines tend to be dense and firm, demanding patience.

The lieu-dit "Aux Thorey" (or "Les Thorey") sits in the north beside "Chaignots" en route to Vosne-Romanée. Domaine de Montille cultivates 0.73 hectare of vines there in the part of the cru that is closest to Vosne-Romanée and on soils composed mostly of limestone and marl.

Found at the foot of the hill, again in the northern section near Vosne-Romanée, the ressemblance of this wine to one from Vosne is striking. Aromatic to the point of almost being perfumed with its floral notes, this tender and succulent wine has a lithe frame that opens up relatively early (around three to five years).

Tasting Notes

EYE: soft burgundy red.

NOSE: A touch of the sauvage to the fresh and cool red and dark berry fruit aromas that are freely interlaced with earth and forest floor elements..

MOUTH: Lovely palate feel to the vibrant and lightly mineral-inflected medium bodied flavors that deliver fine complexity and solid length on the balanced finale. There is some youthful austerity present but it should pass with a few years of bottle age..

Food Pairing

Burgundy stews, savory buttery sauce, roasted meats.
