Domaine Rene Monnier Les Vignots Pommard 2016

Textured and quite weighty, this wine has chunky red
fruit on the palate and finishing on a herbal and earthy
note.


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
2016 was generally a challenging vintage due to a severe frost on April 27th which
damaged a large part of the crop and resulted in lower yields. Fine weather in
September helped to rescue this vintage. The fruit that remained was good quality,
without extremes of acidity, alcohol or fruit concentration, resulting in a classic style of
Burgundy.


Vineyard
Pommard is a village in the Côtes de Beaune appellation, which neighbours Volnay
and is renowned for producing rich, opulent wines from the Pinot Noir grape.
Domaine Rene Monnier farms its vineyards according to ‘la lutte raisonnée’, using
sustainable agriculture methods and reducing the use of chemicals in order to
respect the land and its environment. The soils in the vineyard are typically marl and
clay, 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.


Tasting Note
An attractive dark fruit nose with a slight touch of earthiness, is followed by brighter,
brambly red fruit on the palate, underpinned by herbal notes. Concentrated and
textured, silky tannins lead to a wonderfully long finish.
