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. 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.
