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
