Why I like this wine

Cultivated in a blessing terroir, this wine from Clos du Meix Garnier Monopole bursts with aromas of ripe cherries, plums, berries and strawberries, delicate floral notes like peonies is present, a hint of liquorice and oak as well. On the palate, it’s well balanced with its medium-bodied, silky and enveloping tannins and ripe acids. A promising work to represent this monopole in Monthélie.

Monthélie Douhairet Porcheret

From 1976-1988 Porcheret was Head Winemaker for the Hospices de Beaune, building such an enviable reputation that he was lured away by Lalou Bize-Leroy to help get the now legendary Domaine Leroy up and running. Porcheret worked with her converting the vineyards to biodynamic farming, returning to the Hospices in 1993 until 1999. During this time André continued advising Monthelie-Douhairet- Porcheret and, in 2004, he installed his granddaughter Cataldina to take over the domaine when ‘Miss Armande’ passed away.
Today Cataldina works alongside her husband Vincent in the vineyards and winery.
