Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

The Pierre Morey Monthélie is supple and delicate with an elegant style. Blending of six vineyard sites produces a charming wine is soft and fruity. It is ready to drink now; balanced tannins allow this wine to reach its peak after five to eight years of aging.

Only 480 cases produced, and 125 cases imported.

Critical Acclaim

"Very bright, medium ruby hue. Prominent aromas of grilled, smoky black fruit with a pleasant tarry quality in the background. Sweet black and red fruit flavors accented by a grilled meat element. Herbal nuances blossom in the finish. Very complex."

This is a fabulously light burgundy. Incredible flavors emerge - especially if you decant it and allow it to breath.

Bought this for a friend who is particular towards French wine Paired it with venison tenderloin. Seemed simple at first, lithe almost. Then it built into a beautiful long burst of cherry and blackberry. Long finish. Great surprise. I ordered more

DC Wine - Washington, DC (read all my reviews)

Smooth start but not a lot of complexity to it, so not sure abou the wine news review. Again, could be a delivery issue. A little spicy at the end, but would have been upset if I hadn't gotten the 43% off sale price. Additionally, not a big french pinot fan, so could also impact my opinion (perfer west coast).
