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.
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. The
fermentation took place in open vats, with twice daily punch downs or "pigéages"
during the fermentation. Part of the wine was fermented in new French oak barrels.
One the fermentation was complete, the wine was aged in French oak barrels, of
which 30% were new, for a period of 16 months.
Tasting Note
Beautiful integration of oak with rich, elegantly styled fruit and a balanced acidity
through to a wonderful long, butterscotch, well sustained finish.
Serving Suggestion
Wonderful served chilled with veal in cream sauces, or with fish and lobster.
