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
A wet winter and spring built soil water reserves which was important for the
forthcoming growing season. A cold snap in February allowed the vines to rest and
the sap to descend. Warm weather in April increased the vine's development, which
continued throughout the hot, dry growing season. Harvest took place under good
conditions producing exceptionally healthy fruit. 2018 is an excellent vintage for both
quantity and quality.


Vineyard
The vineyards are farmed according to "la lutte raisonnée", using sustainable
agriculture 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
Picked at optimum maturity, the grapes were vinified using traditional methods. Prefermentation maceration lasted for six days to extract aromas, flavour and fine
tannins. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks over two weeks followed by
maturation in French oak barrels for 10 months, of which 30% were new.


Tasting Note
Lovely Pinot Noir typicity on the nose with wild raspberry, ripe cherry and savoury
notes. Pure vibrant red berry fruit is enveloped by velvety tannins on the palate
through to a long, elegant finish.
