This wine exhibits a lush bouquet of citrusy lemon skin and white fruity essences, a result of the expansive clay deposits in the ground. Its taste is vibrant and vivid, forthrightly displaying ripened stone fruits in harmony with delectable tartness and a lingering aftertaste. A perfect accompaniment to white-fleshed fish dishes, shellfish, and poultry, it brings a well-balanced flavour to any meal.

Vineyard and Winery
Montille’s `Le Clos du Château` is a five-hectare vineyard located within the walls of the castle of Puligny. Soils here are predominantly comprised of clay. The domaine has practised organic viticulture since 1995 and was certified organic in 2012. Since 2005 it has also converted to biodynamic viticulture.
The hand-picked grapes were carefully selected in both the vineyard and cellar to ensure only the best were vinified. They were gently pressed under sulphur to stop malolactic fermentation before undergoing a slow fermentation with indigenous yeasts at controlled temperatures. Lees stirring was carried out a total of five times over a two-week period. Two thirds of the wine was then racked to 600 litre French oak barrels (3rd and 4th use) and the remaining third to stainless-steel tanks to undergo 12 months ageing
