“A captivating nose with a dreamy red fruit compote note. Zippy and bright on the palate with delightful freshness. A playful middle rings in lively aromas and flavors of juicy red berries, raspberry coulis, cranberry, pomegranate, Bing cherry and orange peel. Layers of dried herbs, tea leaf, white truffle, minerals, cured meats, freshly cracked black pepper and dried mushrooms unfold unexpected complexity. With an immensely pleasing textural dimension and a savory finish, light on its feet with finesse, this is the ideal Burgundy that will equally appeal to white and red fans. Unreal value for a Premier Cru, might we add.” - California Wine Advisors

“The 2015 Monthélie Les Duresses has a lovely, frisky raspberry coulis and strawberry-scented bouquet with good intensity. The palate is fleshy and generous with a keen line of acidity, harmonious with a pleasant touch of piquancy on the finish.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (#228)

“Aromas of redcurrant, mint and menthol. Juicy, fresh flavors of red berries and spices display a lovely sugar/acid balance, giving this attractive wine considerable early appeal. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and very good length.” - Stephen Tanzer (Vinous 1/18)
