Wine of Monthelie appellation
The Monthélie AOC is a Village Appellation of the Côte de Beaune in the Côte-d'Or. It includes 15 climats classified as Premier Cru. The Monthélie and Monthélie Premier Cru appellations may be followed by the name of their climat.

Facing south and southeast, the vineyards lie on pebbly Bathonian limestone covered with red clay and marl. Some of the vines grow on the Volnay side of the village and some on the Auxey-Duresses side where the rock is Argovian limestone and exposures are easterly or westerly, depending on the lie of the land. Altitudes are between 230-370 meters. 

The red wines of the Monthélie AOC come from Pinot Noir and the whites from Chardonnay. 

Characteristics of wine: 
Red Monthélie displays a beautiful ruby hue. Its aromas are of black and red berries (cherry, blackcurrant), with occasional floral notes (violet, peony), evolving towards undergrowth, bracken and spices with age. Its firm and velvety body is underpinned by fine tannins. Like Volnay, it has the image of being a feminine wine. 
White Monthélie, with its lovely hue with golden highlights, is a close cousin to Meursault. Its aromas, evocative of white flowers (hawthorn), Reinette apple and fresh hazelnut, are often accompanied by vanilla overtones. On the palate, the wines have a mellow flavour uplifted by the acidity required, and typically found, in fine white wines.
