Located south of the Côte de Beaune , Monthelie is a vineyard village adjoining the communes of Meursault to the east and Volnay to the north. Wines, whose reputation is growing, are truly very close to their neighbors, and still enjoy very attractive prices. But for how long ... you can, if you wish, read an article published in September 2012 entitled " Monthélie : grand cru caché". The vineyard, with a small area of ​​130 hectares, is planted with more than 80% Pinot Noir for the production of red wines. They develop notes of black and red fruits, and gain, with age, a complexity tending to undergrowth and spicy notes. As for the Volnay, the red wines of Monthelie are often classified among the "feminine" wines. One third of this production is classified in Premier Cru, as the Monthélie the Champs Fulliots that we have selected for you. Rich and Powerful. Not frankly feminine, but rather explosive and already complex. An undeniable success. The remaining 20% ​​is naturally planted with Chardonnay grapes to produce charming white wines with a beautiful minerality. Here again, one can without complex, compare them with the wines of Meursault. You can also get an idea by buying the products of Domaine Denis Boussey, present on the site. In all, about fifteen wines are classified in Premier Cru and 24 plots can give their name to vintages. For this, the wine must be produced by a vine located in one plot. This precision is not systematically brought by the winegrowers in Burgundy . We propose you, on defivin, to discover the wonderful red or white wines of the appellation Monthelie in Premier Cru or appellation Village.   Consult our offers in the Monthélie appellation of Domaine Denis Boussey.
