This Monthélie comes from a parcel located on the hillside behind the village. It is one of the last to be harvested by the estate. According to Dominique Lafon, its late ripeness is that of the Côte de Nuits, with a great personality, it opens with intense aromas of black cherries and subtle spicy notes. And despite its youthful accessibility, it lacks neither substance nor finesse. It is one of the most beautiful wines of the appellation, which also tickles the neighbours of Volnay!

Beautiful plot of just over one hectare, situated on the hillside behind the village. The soil is red and stony on the bottom, and whiter on the top, with a good depth. Exposed to the East and in the combe opening to the North, it is later (maturity equivalent to the Cote de Nuits): it is regularly the last plot harvested on the estate. The wines produced are full-bodied, more rustic, with pronounced aromas of black cherry.


After sorting, the grapes are received by a de-stemmer that respects the integrity of the logs as much as possible. Fermentation starts spontaneously and slowly. The grapes are devatted and pressed after 15/20 days of maceration. The wine is put into barrels by gravity. The proportion of new barrels is about 1/3. Bottling is scheduled after 18 or 22 months of ageing.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Parsley ham - Braised sweetbreads - Grilled Bresse chicken and oyster mushrooms.
