2005 Paul Garaudet Monthelie


Burgundy, France / $28-$30 Retail

The village of Monthelie is situated in the heart of Burgundy's Cote de Beaune, nestled between Meursault, renowned for white wines, and Volnay, creator of stunning reds. Its wines are not nearly as well known as those of its famous neighbors, yet the Pinot Noirs of Monthelie are subtly elegant and much less expensive. This value-priced Paul Garaudet Burgundy is packed with cherry and strawberry overtones and offers a long finish. Open an hour or two before serving for best results. Enjoy it with grilled meats, tuna, salmon, fowl or game. Buy it at: Swirl Wines, The Wine Seller and Bacchanal. Drink it at: Bayona, Herbsaint, Dick & Jenny's and Emeril's Delmonico. — Brenda Maitland
