The Wine

Located between Volnay and Meursault, the village of Monthélie is much less known than its illustrious neighbours. However, on this terroir, the first traces of vines go back to the 9th century. As for the "Les Duresses" climate, it is divided between the villages of Auxey-Duresses, of which it is the jewel, and the village of Monthélie, where it is one of the most remarkable Premiers Crus. The 1.72 hectares of the Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils, often harvested a little later than the other Monthélie, give birth to rich and pleasantly structured wines. One to look out for in warmer vintages! 

90-92+ Robert Parkers Wine Advocate : "The 2019 Monthélie 1er Cru Les Duresses opens in the glass with scents of peonies, wild berries, dark chocolate and coniferous forest floor. Medium-bodied, lively and concentrated, it's deep and velvety, with lively acids and an unusually suave, elegant texture for young Monthélie. From a late-ripening site, its racier profile distinguishes it from the more gourmand Monthélie Champs Fulliot."

89-92 Allan Meadows, Burghound "A much earthier and more sauvage-suffused nose speaks of poached plum, dark raspberry and a hint of forest floor. There is both excellent energy and details to the nicely mineral-driven medium weight flavors that conclude in a grippy but not tough finish that offers fine depth and persistence. Les Duresses almost never drinks especially well young and I don’t see this one doing that either so be prepared to give it at least 5 to 6 years first."

89-91 Jasper Morris, MW Inside Burgundy "Clean glowing purple, picked late, but this pays off with a really classy nose. Perhaps lifted by the whole bunch, which gives an additional ripe strawberry perfume. Crunchy and dynamic, with correct acidity and the fruit covers any tannins entirely. Long and delicious."

About the Wine Maker

Today the Burgundian wine domaine of Bouchard Pere et Fils can trace its origins back to 1731, though it is no longer family owned. In 1995 the Champagne house Joseph Henriot acquired the company and quality has risen as a consequence. Bouchard is led by Stéphane Follin Arbelet, while the wines are made by Philippe Prost - who has been with the company since 1978. An impressive gravity-flow winery on the Route de Savigny, the Cuvérie St Vincent, was completed in 2005 and enables them to process all their wines with optimum efficiency. Bouchard’s total holdings comprise 130 hectares, including 12ha of grand crus and 74ha of premier crus, which makes them the largest vineyard owners in the Côte d’Or.
