This monopole vineyard (exclusively owned by the domaine) is situated on the upper slopes of Gevrey in the area of the St. Jacques vineyards. The cool and severe location of the terroir results in a structured, elegant wine, really masculine and intense, and precise. A mere 25 cases are imported to the US.

"I had never before tasted an example of the Harmands' premier cru Monopole of La Bossiere, but I was very impressed with the red fruity and very minerally 2008 that I tasted. Like Jean-Marie Fourrier's example of Les Goulots, this is a wine that one might suspect of hailingfrom Chambolle-Musigny, rather than Gevrey, if served the wine blind. The vines here are a very solid twenty-five years of age and are just entering their prime. The 2008 is a really lovely middleweight, jumping from the glass in a complex and vibrant melange of wild strawberries, cherries, grilled meat, a touch of licorice, really lovely minerality and the gentlest touch of new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish and very elegant in style, with very good (but not great) depth at the core, lovely focus and delineation, moderate tannins and a very long, transparent and tangy finish. Just a lovely wine that does not possess quite the same inherent power as the Clos Prieur here, but makes up for that with great breed and complexity. 2018-2040+." 91+/100 John Gilman, View From the Cellar
