Wine tasting
  • Tasting Note
    Our Monthelie 2013 has a lovely ruby colour. Aromas of strawberries, liquorice and spicy hints on the nose. The palate is round with notes of small red fruits and cocoa. The supple tannins give a nice elegance to this wine.

Press review
    • Monthélie rouge 2014 - Wine Enthusiast - October 2016 - 88/100

      Produced in this village in the hills behind the main slope of the Côte de Beaune, this wine is smooth and rich. Fine, soft tannins easily integrate into the sweet texture and red-plum fruit. The acidity is there, giving a wine that is both fresh and generous. Drink from 2018.
