  1. Monthelie Douhairet Porcheret Monthelie 1er Cru Les Duresses 2015
    $37.98
    Availability:In Stock
    Named for the 300-year-old Southern Burgundy village in which it is located, Monthelie Douhairet was run by the Douhairet family for many years. In 1989, Madame Douhairet asked renowned winemaker André Porcheret to take charge and added his name to the domaine.  One of the great figures in Burgundy during the past half-century, André was the cellar manager at the Hospices de Beaune from 1976–1988, before he was hired by Lalou Bize Leroy to make wines at the newly created Domaine Leroy from 1988–1993. He returned to the Hospices de Beaune from 1994–1999, and since 1989, he has also been overseeing Monthelie Douhairet Porcheret’s 15 acres, mainly in the Côte de Beaune appellations of Pommard, Volnay, Meursault and Monthelie.

  2. Potinet-Ampeau Monthelie 1er Cru Les Champs-Fulliots 2002
    $44.98
    Availability:In Stock
    Many folks aren’t familiar with Monthelie but the finest vineyards here, located in the southern part of the appellation, actually next to Volnay and, in the case of Les Champs-Fulliots, tucks in nicely with both Pousse d’Or’s heralded Volnay 1er Cru 60 Ouvrees and Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chenes. What a spot!  In excellent vintages like 2002, Champs-Fulliots ripens to perfection producing a wine that, after aging in Potinet-Ampeau's cool cellars, delivers a supreme value. The wine, from that aforementioned outstanding 2002 harvest, is ‘spot-on’, juicy, forward, extroverted, full of ripe, dark red cherry fruit, a subtle stony kiss and perfectly resolved tannins.
