Collection: Domaine Monthelie-Douhairet-Porcheret, Monthelie

After Hospices de Beaune and Leroy, Andre Porcheret's next venture!

..full and sturdy... show elegance as well - Clive Coats MW

Domaine Monthelie-Douhairet-Porcheret owns 6.5 hectares of vineyard, mainly in the Côte de Beaune appellations of Pommard, Volnay, Meursault and Monthelie, now run by André Porcheret and his grand-daughter Cataldina Porcheret.

André was the cellar manager at the Hospices de Beaune from 1976–1988, before he was hired by Lalou Bize Leroy to make wines at the newly created Domaine Leroy from 1988–1993. He returned to the Hospices de Beaune from 1994–1999, and since 1989 he is appointed by Madame Douhairet as wine marker in Domaine Monthelie-Douhairet-Porcheret.

Today, Cataldina and her husband Vincent work with 6.5 hectares of vines across 13 appellations. "The old barrels have been taken out and burnt. New oak is not called for; the domaine buys 1-year-old barrels. The wines are still on the full and sturdy side, but now they show elegance as well." (Clive Coats MW, Wines of Burgundy, p 235)
