Producer Note
Domaine René Monnier is a leading and sought-after producer situated in the heart
of Meursault. With over 18 hectares of vineyard in the most prestigious Crus of the
Côte de Beaune, Domaine René Monnier is one of the largest privately owned
domains in the region. Founded in 1723, the domain is now in the hands of the tenth
generation, with all the wines being skilfully made by Xavier Monnot. Domaine René
Monnier's white wines are fresh and stylish avoiding an excessive use of oak, while
the reds are the epitome of fine Burgundy demonstrating the balanced, silky style of
this house.


Vintage
2016 was generally a challenging vintage due to frost which affected the vineyard
on 27th April, damaging a large part of the crop and resulting in lower yields. Fine
weather in September helped to rescue this vintage. The fruit that remained was
good quality, without extremes of acidity, alcohol or fruit concentration, resulting in a
classic style of Burgundy.


Vineyard
The vineyards are farmed according to "la lutte raisonnée", using sustainable
agricultural methods, reducing the use of chemicals in order to respect the land and
its environment. The soils in the vineyard are limestone mixed with marl, retaining
moisture in dry weather, but also offering good drainage in cooler weather.


Winemaking
This wine was made using traditional Burgundian vinification techniques.
Fermentation started in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks with submersions
of the cap or "pigeages" during fermentation. It was then transferred to oak casks
(25% new) where it underwent bâtonnage of the fine lees until it had completed
malolactic fermentation. It was racked after spending 10 months ageing in oak,
lightly fined and filtered, prior to being bottled.


Tasting Note
A beautiful, elegant Burgundy with notes of smoky plums and red berries. Balanced,
with firm tannins on the palate, the ripe fruit flavours are layered with hints of spice
and leather, through to a complex and lingering finish.
