Description to Monthelie AOC

Appellation named after the commune of the same name for red and white wines in the Côte de Beaune part of the Côte d'Or in Burgundy, France. It borders the commune of Meursault. An alternative appellation exclusively for red wines is Monthélie-Côte de Beaune. The vineyards cover 125 hectares of vines on gravelly limestone overlaid with red clay and marl. The writer Pierre Poupon wrote in his book "The Wines of Burgundy": "Beautifully nestled in the curve of the hill like the head of St. John against the shoulder of Jesus, Monthélie resembles a village in Tuscany".

The white varieties cover 15 hectares, 2 of which are classified as Premier Cru. They are produced from Chardonnay and max. 15% Pinot Blanc.
