Domaine Monthelie-Douhairet 2000 En Champans - Volnay Premier Cru Red (Volnay)

Hits you with a delicious array of flavors, ranging from raspberry and vanilla to strawberry and caramel. Soft tannins feel plush in the mouth, yet the acidity is bright.

Domaine Monthelie-Douhairet 1999 Clos Le Meix Garnier Monopole Red (Monthélie)

Firmly structured, with a smooth mouthfeel and a long finish, this wine needs a few years to relax its tightly wound core of black cherries. Right now, what’s showing is mostly spicy, briary notes.
