Domaine Alain Patriarche Bourgone Chardonnay La Monatine 2016
The Monatine vineyard lies entirely within the village of Meursault. Alain’s vines are from the oldest part of the vineyard, but lie about 30 ft outside the boundary to be designated a village-level wine. He can therefore only market the wine as a regional Bourgogne, even though it has all the characteristics of a village Meursault. A top value that many sommeliers call, the “Baby Meursault”.
