Jean-Claude Boisset Monthelie Blanc 2017
Region: Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, France
Bottle size: 75cl
A golden example Burgundy, not only in colour. Citrus and very ripe berries on the nose, this wine has a finely concentrated palate that combines creaminess and a mineral character.
The small, picturesque village of Monthélie is situated in the centre of the Côte de Beaune, immediately south of Volnay and bordered by Auxey-Duresses and Meursault. It is one of the smallest communes in the Côte de Beaune - only 120 hectares of vines are planted, of which just 7.5 hectares are Chardonnay.
Jean-Claude Boisset is a family-owned wine company founded in 1961. Jean-Claude’s first parcel of land was located in Gevrey-Chambertin and today the company is based in Les Ursulines, a former convent in Nuits-Saint-Georges, and run by his children Jean-Charles and Nathalie. In 2018, they opened a new state-of-the-art winery, which reflects their modern, technical approach to winemaking. The wines have been made by Grégory Patriat since 2002. He previously worked as head viticulturalist and assistant winemaker at the legendary Domaine Leroy, and has brought a detailed, vineyard-led approach to Jean-Claude Boisset
