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.
