About this WINE

Domaine Monthélie-Douhairet-Porcheret

Domaine Monthélie-Douhairet-Porcheret

Located in the village of Monthélie in the Côte de Beaune subregion of Burgundy, Domaine Monthélie-Douhairet-Porcheret was established in 2003 through the merger of two historic family estates: Domaine Monthélie-Douhairet and Domaine Porcheret. The estate is currently managed by the talented winemaker, Fabienne Douhairet, who is known for her commitment to producing high-quality wines that reflect the region's unique terroir.

The domaine owns and manages approximately 7 hectares of vineyards, primarily planted with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. The vineyards are located in some of the most prestigious appellations of Burgundy, including Monthélie, Volnay, Pommard, and Meursault. Sustainable viticulture is practised at the domaine, focusing on preserving the natural balance of the vineyards and minimising the use of chemicals.

The wines of Domaine Monthélie-Douhairet-Porcheret are highly regarded for their elegance, finesse, and purity of fruit. The domaine produces a range of red and white wines, including premier cru and village-level bottlings. The wines are aged in French oak barrels to enhance their complexity and structure, and are noted for their ability to age gracefully over time.

Chardonnay

Chardonnay

Chardonnay is often seen as the king of white wine grapes and one of the most widely planted in the world It is suited to a wide variety of soils, though it excels in soils with a high limestone content as found in Champagne, Chablis, and the Côte D`Or.

Burgundy is Chardonnay's spiritual home and the best White Burgundies are dry, rich, honeyed wines with marvellous poise, elegance and balance. They are unquestionably the finest dry white wines in the world. Chardonnay plays a crucial role in the Champagne blend, providing structure and finesse, and is the sole grape in Blanc de Blancs.

It is quantitatively important in California and Australia, is widely planted in Chile and South Africa, and is the second most widely planted grape in New Zealand. In warm climates Chardonnay has a tendency to develop very high sugar levels during the final stages of ripening and this can occur at the expense of acidity. Late picking is a common problem and can result in blowsy and flabby wines that lack structure and definition.

Recently in the New World, we have seen a move towards more elegant, better- balanced and less oak-driven Chardonnays, and this is to be welcomed.
