The quiet charmer in Lafon's range. Robust, very good firmness with a lovely concentration in this vintage. From an excellent parcel with stony soils facing east. It is usually the last parcel to be harvested for the estate. This late-ripening character of the terroir is more similar to the Cote de Nuits. Very low yields with vines dating back to 1975.

"The 2010 Monthelie from Dominique Lafon was showing beautifully at the time of my visit, offering up a very refined nose of red and black cherries, raw cocoa, violets, chalky soil tones, woodsmoke and a touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure on the attack, with a good core, lovely acids, refined tannins and outstanding length and grip on the intensely flavored finish. This will want a minimum of five or six years in the cellar to really start to blossom and show off its secondary layers of complexity. A beautiful bottle of Monthelie. 2017-2040." 91/100 John Gilman, View From the Cellar
