Press review
    • Monthélie 2018 - 90 pts - Wine Spectator May 2021

      This red is smoky and bisected by cherry, raspberry and spice flavors. Linear and wound tight, it picks up a mineral element as it winds down on the long finish. Best from 2023 through 2032. — BS

    • 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.
