Premier Cru
“Les Riottes”

The Heart of Monthelie

Located at the centre of Monthelie (pronounced Mont’lie) the 11 hectare “Les Riottes” Premier Cru climat (one of 15 climats in the appellation) sits snug into the south and south-east facing, and steep, hillsides of the Côte de Beaune, elevated around 300 metres above sea level. The appellation’s predominantly pebbly Bathonian limestone sits on a bed of marl and red clay, responsible for sculpting an equally delicate and feminine wine as its neighbor, and close friend, Volnay. A trip south from Pommard up the hill towards Monthelie will offer a dazzling panorama of the whole Côte de Beaune. The word “Riottes” takes its name from a narrow lane in old French.

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Jérôme Aucourt

In memory

For fifteen years, Jérôme Aucourt introduced tens of thousands of people around the world to the wines of Château de Pommard. His passion for Burgundy and his knowledge of wine was limitless. In memory of our friend, colleague, father, husband, and wine advisor, we have established the Jérôme Aucourt Scholarship at our Ècole V Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) professional wine school. Details of the scholarship program will be published soon. Jérôme is survived by his wife Allison, their two young children, his mother, father, and two brothers.
