The 17th Century Chateau named for this world-famous Chardonnay producing village has changed hands many times during its history. In 2001 the owners hired Etienne de Montille, son of famous Côte-de-Beaune wine maker Hubert Montille, to take over farming and production. He immediately instituted changes in the vineyards and cellar and began turning "good" wines in to great ones.

In 2012 Etienne and his sister Alix (a star winemaker too) purchased the property so it is now officially in the Montille Family of wines. It's a perfect marriage of an iconic estate to a renowned and highly pedigreed family domaine. Indeed the name "Montille" is itself an iconic brand in Burgundy now.

Why? What’s so great about the de Montille wines? Everything. Attention to every detail: in the farming, the winemaking, even the corks they use. They are biodynamic, which works particularly well in a clos with no neighbors to spray chemicals on nearby rows. They harvest by hand, age in a mix of woods, and manage to make all the tiny little choices that individually are hard to identify as so important but that, aggregated, are what make great wines great.

"Note: from a 1.8 ha holding of 60+ year old vines There is a vague hint of the exotic suffusing the aromas of essence of pear, passion fruit and citrus confit. There is again a really lovely texture to the vibrant middle weight flavors that exude much more obvious mineral nuances on the bone-dry, slightly austere and lingering finale."

"The 2020 Saint-Aubin En Remilly 1er Cru has a neutral nose, quite mineral-driven, touches of petrichor. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, taut and fresh, a touch of bitter lemon with quite a saline aftertaste. Enjoy this over the next decade." -Vinous
