DOMAINE CHANGARNIER MONTHELIE PIERREFITTE
This 4.5-hectare domaine was founded by the Changarnier family in 1720, 69 years prior to the French revolution. Named for the Dolmens or Menhirs found here, Pierrefitte (orô˜Pi€—ce Fitte) is located near the boundary with Volnay, on the hilltop at an altitude of almost 325 metres.
Deep ruby red in colour, the nose displays intense aromas of black cherry and blackberry with hints of toast, vanilla and black pepper. Elegant and fresh on the palate, with a core of black fruit and round, silky tannins. The chalky minerality leads to a bright, lifted finished.
