Domaine de Montille - Meursault 1er Cru 'Porusots' 2019


Domaine de Montille has practiced organic viticulture since 1995. Today, the wines are certified by Ecocert. Additionally, since 2005, biodynamic practices have been implemented to show our full respect for these living soils.

Domaine de Montille wines are known for their great aromatic purity. Always favor balance and elegance over power and extraction. The wines are classic expressions of Burgundy, of their appellations in general and of their specific terroirs in particular. The farming methods used contribute to this individual style, and the winemaking methods aim to avoid excessive outside influences in order to bring out the equilibrium that can be found naturally in Burgundian terroir.

 "Porusot" is the diminuitive of porroux, which is found in the lieu-dit "Les Porroux", a regional indication of "places with rocky soils". This is further derived from the Latin plural of petrosa, or "rocky places". Indeed, the terrain of "Porusots" in Meursault is covered with large-sized rocks.

This vineyard of 0.63 hectare takes its excellence from calcareous marl and limestone gravel. This parcel benefits from very early harvesting to keep its structural tension. Situated beside the famous "Les Genevrières" vineyard, it is by nature an exotic wine, which is why we rarely put it in new barrels.
