Presentation of the vineyard
With Volnay located in the north and Meursault in the south, Eric Boussey's vineyard in Monthelie is based in the heart of the great Burgundy districts. Wines from Monthélie are among the most exclusive wines in Burgundy where the quality is equivalent to the aforementioned neighbors, but prices are more reasonable. The family of Eric Boussey has been winegrower for several generations but the current winery was created only in 1981. Both white and red wines are aged in oak barrels for 1 to 1 ½ years before the wine is bottled. The wines are lightly filtered to retain its typical character. The vineyard is located in Monthelie, but Eric produces several wines from famous appellations in the neighborhood.
A beautiful bright red color with tints of raspberry. Typical Pinot noir aromas reminding of fruit and red berries. An elegant and well-balanced taste, for those who like fruity "thirst-quenching" wines. Excellent with wild game or a steak in cream sauce.
