In the Cotes de Beaunes wine region of Burgundy, the Monthelie hamlet is located. This small area of production contains no Grand Cru vineyards, but boasts a number of Premier Cru wines that taste just as delicious. The wines that Monthelie craft are able to age well due to its tannins, which give it incredible structure.
These wines hold notes of violets, cherries and strawberries, which pairs well with foods such as game, poultry and a variety of cheeses. Domaine Dupont-Fahn produce a fantastic Monthelie, made of 100% Pinot Noir, that showcases the best features of a Burgundian red without carrying the usual associated price tag.
