Monthélie is one of the smallest appellations in the Côte de Beaune, with a mere 120 ha of planted vines, including its minuscule 7.5 ha production of Chardonnay. The altitude is around 280 metres, with steep slopes and a south-easterly exposure which give the grapes excellent maturity year after year. The ground here is so-called ‘white' soil with a low limestone content, bestowing refinement and subtlety on the wine.
The colour is yellow with golden reflections. The nose will seduce you with its aromas of ripe yellow fruits with a nice lemon frame, associated with nice mineral notes. On the palate, elegance and fatness mix to offer a nice balance, on lemony flavours.
