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
2019 has been cited as an outstanding vintage and one of the best in recent years.
The dry, warm conditions produced low yields of impeccably balanced, concentrated
wines with refined freshness and remarkable purity. A mild winter was followed by a
chilly spring, with frosts affecting some areas. Cooler temperatures in June resulted in
uneven flowering and some millerandage in some vineyards. However, temperatures
soared in July and August with vines under hydric stress, resulting in superb
concentration and complexity of flavours.
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.
