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 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, 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.
