Domaine Monthelie Douhairet

Domaine Laurent & Karen Boussey

Monthelie Chardonnay

One of the best village white Burgs I’ve had. Beautiful fragrance of stony wet Burgundian earth, sweet marzipan, caramel, and pear. Gorgeous balance in the mouth. Fruit, acid, minerality, length. What a value! — 15 days ago

Domaine Roulot

Monthelie Pinot Noir 2015

I’m loving this. Yeah QPR isn’t great but I didn’t buy it so that’s irrelevant. This is a pretty bottle of wine. Will defer to @Noah Raizman & @Joe Tucker if this counts as fake or real burgundy. — 3 months ago

Real in that it’s next to impossible to find unless you know the right “guy”. Fake in that it’s actually just Rombauer chard poured into an old bottle of Roulot. I know your damn tricks, Gilbane

Great nose. Huge cherry. Spice, mulberry. Deep. Palate is elegant with sweet cherry fruit and lovely soil and mineral tones. Nice dusty tannins. Sweet fruit really gets intense after 30 minutes. Very complex already. In a great spot. — 6 months ago

Good juice my friend.

Les Riottes Monthélie 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Wow. Six days open, and still a riveting blast of black cherry and Côte de Beaune sap. A whiff of new oak has blown off with aeration. Elevated acidity matches palpable extract; a very typical 2015. This is as good as Monthelie can be. — 11 days ago

Bourgogne Aligoté 2016

Aligoté grown in Puligny-Montrachet, during 2016 👍👍

Nose has wet Flint, light white flowers and cold honey.
Palate has tangerine pith, under-ripe pineapple, steely notes on the medium finish.

Great wine, and great winemaker, we met him in May of 2018, very accommodating to have us for a late afternoon appointment at his cellar in Monthelie.

Pommard 1er Cru Les Chanlins Pinot Noir 2002

I hated this at cellar temp but it transformed as it warmed up and aired out. Twiggy fresh cherry and distinctive tannic outlines, minerally core. Pleasant. — 5 months ago

Love this epic Monthelie. Nose is maturing nicely. Dead leaves, dead souls, big damson cherrie, big mineral, mushroom, gorgeous aromas. Palate is very elegant, rich and ripe. Velvety tannins and lovely sweetness. Really maturing on the palate and has that integration I do yearn for. So fresh and wonderful purity. Long. Drink them if you have then but no rush. — 2 months ago

Les Duresses Monthélie 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2014

This is a manly wine. Like, "let's smoke a cigar and chat about sports by the grill."
Bold and earthy and fruit.
Super cool that wine can transport you and posses these qualities!
