Headquartered in Monthélie, in the heart of the Côte de Beaune, Domaine Douhairet-Porcheret covers eight hectares of vineyards in Monthélie, Pommard, Volnay, and Meursault. The estate is over 300 years old. The Douhairet family ran Monthélie Douhairet (as it was called) for many years. In 1989, Mademoiselle Douhairet asked renowned winemaker André Porcheret to take charge and added his name to the domaine; he was joined by his granddaughter Cataldina Lippo in 2004. She and her partner, Vincent, are now at the helm. They have brought great energy, passion, a touch of modernism, and a refined style. The wines show more fruit and are more precise yet still showcase the appellation from where they come.
Most recent review on this wine was for the 2018 vintage, which received 90 points from Wine Advocate: "Inviting aromas of blood orange, raspberries and plums introduce the 2018 Monthélie Clos du Meix Garnier Monopole, a medium to full-bodied, satiny wine with tangy acids and chalky tannins. It's an elegantly fleshy but mineral red that has turned out nicely." (Jun 2020)
