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 chalk mixed with clay, retaining moisture
in dry weather, but also offering good drainage in cooler weather.
Winemaking
The grapes were meticulously sorted and were gently pressed as whole bunches,
followed by static settling of the must before fermentation. Traditional vinification
methods were used and then wine was then matured in oak barrels, of which 30%
were new oak, for a period of 13 months.
Tasting Note
A complex nose of almond and fresh apricot accompanied by vanilla and
butterscotch notes. The wine is full bodied with apricot dominating the fresh fruit
palate. The finish is buttery with subtle hints of toasty oak.
Serving Suggestion
A fantastic wine to pair with shellfish, especially lobster and scallops.
