Domaine de Montille - Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2021

IN STOCK

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.
Back was purchased back in 2004, this 1.02-ha plot was planted with pinot noir and the wines produced there fell within the Corton Pougets appellation. It seemed to that the soil, made of yellow marl, light brown clay and fine, thick pebbles, was better suited to the production of great white wines. In 2005, it was decided to overgraft the vines with Chardonnay in the upper part of the 35 year old vines. The lower part, which was too old, was ripped out and replanted.
After a light settling, the musts are put into 228 and 600-liter-barrels to complete the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations. We work with 5 to 20% new barrels with wood coming mostly from Allier, light toasting. The wines are racked about a year later before being transfered to stainless steel vats for the second phase of their aging in order to retain freshness and minerality.
