MONTHELIE CUVÉE «MISS ARMANDE» 2017

Etymology

|  As with the red, we decided to name our Monthelie ‘MISS ARMANDE’ as a tribute to Madame Armande Douhairet herself.

Location

|  La Combe d’Anay blended with the small Les Darnées parcel.

Surface

|  1,30 hectares.

Style

|  The Monthelie white, which neighbours the Meursault appellation, offers a beautiful hue flecked with gold. The nose is dominated by aromas of vanilla, white flowers (hawthorn), reinette apple and fresh hazelnut. The palate is smooth and round with a touch of sweetness that is balanced out by a fresh acidity, the sign of a high-quality white.

Our sommelier’s recommendations

|  Its rich, powerful body makes it the ideal choice for seared gambas. It also works well with fish dishes, whether they be in a tajine, stir fry or curry, thanks to its smooth yet lively texture. The intense flavours of salmon are well-suited to this wine, as is the classic Burgundian dish of snails. An excellent choice for blue cheeses such as Roquefort, Bleu de Bresse or Bleu d’Auvergne.

Serving temperature

|  12 to 15°C.

Ageing potential

|  4 to 5 years or more, depending on the vintage.
