Monthelie January 1st, 2017


Located behind Volnay and Meursault, a red Monthelie is similar to a mini-Volnay but a little bit more rustic, mostly for drinking in the first ten years. Expect a little more flesh on the bones than from neighbouring Auxey-Duresses. Whites are rarely interesting except in youth.

  • Vineyards: Les Duresses
  • Producers: Château de Monthelie, Darviot-Perrin
