2011 Douhairet Porcheret Monthelie

"One of Burgundy's most legendary wine makers, Andre Porcheret is doing some incredibly things with this domaine's humble holdings. After helping launch the first 6 vintages of Domaine Leroy (which included multiple 100 point scores), Andre came to this domaine in Monthelie, taking over as full time winemaker. The wines are one of the greatest gems we've ever discovered in Burgundy. The house's signature wine, this is very pure and polished, as Monthelie should be. The grace that the fruit shows leads way to great floral and chalky undertones, with noticeable dry tannins that aren't intrusive. Amazing with food." [+]
