Monthelie is situated between Volnay and Meursault, looking out at the first hills of the Côte de Beaune.
The Monthelie red is a handsome ruby colour. Its aromas are of small red and black fruits (cherry, blackcurrant) with sometimes floral notes (violet, peony) which with age shift towards underbrush, bracken and spices. Its firm and velvety texture overlies delicate tannins. Monthelie, like Volnay, is thought of as a feminine wine.
With its handsome golden highlights, white Monthelie is a close cousin to Meursault. Its lemony aromas blend with notes of mayflowers, Reinette apple, and fresh hazelnut. In the mouth, its mellow taste is backed by the degree of acidity which is a sine qua non of great white wines.
