Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
COMMENTARY: Monthélie is one of those Burgundy appellations that often gets overlooked by most wine lovers. I have often found the wines to represent some of the area's best values. The 2015 Domaine Dubuet-Monthélie 1er Cru Les Champs Fullots is an excellent example of the brightness of this region's wines. TASTING NOTES: This wine stays bright and elegant from beginning to end. Its aromas and flavors of red and black fruits couple with hints of dried leather make it a fine pairing choice with grilled lollipop lamb chops. (Tasted: September 11, 2018, San Francisco, CA USA)

This small family-owned domaine has been around for two centuries, currently in its 6th generation with David Dubuet at the helm. Located in Monthélie neighboring famous such as Volnay and Meursault, their 8 hectares are spread across Beaune, Meursault, Auxey-Duresses, Savigny-Les-Beaune, and Pernand-Vergelesses. The domaine practices "lutte raisonnée" in the vineyards without the use of pesticides or herbicides. The production of pinot noir and chardonnay is primarily bottled in single cuvées from lieux-dits and premier crus.

Pinot Noir

View all wine

One of the most finicky yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is a labor of love for many. However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. In fact, it is the only red variety permitted in Burgundy. Highly reflective of its terroir, Pinot Noir prefers calcareous soils and a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality and demands a lot of attention in the vineyard and winery. It retains even more glory as an important component of Champagne as well as on its own in France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions. This sensational grape enjoys immense international success, most notably growing in Oregon, California and New Zealand with smaller amounts in Chile, Germany (as Spätburgunder) and Italy (as Pinot Nero).

In the Glass

Pinot Noir is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry and cherry with some heftier styles delving into the red or purple plum and in the other direction, red or orange citrus. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and a lively acidity. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount) it can develop hauntingly alluring characteristics of fresh earth, savory spice, dried fruit and truffles.

Perfect Pairings

Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon and tuna but its mild mannered tannins give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry: chicken, quail and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, Pinot noir has proven it isn’t afraid of beef. California examples work splendidly well with barbecue and Pinot Noir is also vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

Sommelier Secret

For administrative purposes, the region of Beaujolais is often included in Burgundy. But it is extremely different in terms of topography, soil and climate, and the important red grape here is ultimately Gamay, not Pinot noir. Truth be told, there is a tiny amount of Gamay sprinkled around the outlying parts of Burgundy (mainly in Maconnais) but it isn’t allowed with any great significance and certainly not in any Village or Cru level wines. So "red Burgundy" still necessarily refers to Pinot noir.
