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
The 2017 vintage in Burgundy enjoyed favourable weather conditions throughout the
growing period. The season was marked by an alternation of warm and sunny days,
with rainy and overcast days, which allowed the grapes to ripen gradually. The
harvest produced homogeneous results with good quality berries and wonderful
balance between sugar and acidity. The 2017 is a very good vintage with excellent
aging potential.


Vineyard
The Pinot Noir vines were planted in 1936 and are low yielding, producing a rich,
concentrated style of Volnay. Grown in the Premier Cru named plot of Clos des
Chênes in Volnay, the vines are cultivated according to "la lutte raisonnée", using
sustainable agricultural methods and reducing the amount of chemicals, in order to
respect the land and its environment. The soils are predominantly limestone and
clay.


Winemaking
The grapes were meticulously sorted to ensure only the highest quality fruit was
vinified. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks and the wine was transferred
into French oak casks, of which 25% were new, with bâtonnage of the fine lees
adding complexity and texture until the completion of malolactic conversion. Racked
after 10 months in barrel, the wine was gently fined and filtered prior to being estate
bottled by gravity.


Tasting Note
A silky and light bodied Volnay with liquorice, wild strawberry and raspberry tones.
Superbly fine tannins give a classy, understated mouthfeel through to a lingering
and elegant finish.
