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 searing 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 of flavours.
Vineyard
The vineyards are farmed according to "la lutte raisonnée", using sustainable
agricultural methods, reducing the use of chemicals in order to respect the land and its
environment. Great attention is paid to limiting the yields in the vineyards, to produce
beautifully balanced wines. The soils in the vineyard are limestone mixed with marl,
retaining moisture in dry weather, but also offering good drainage in cooler weather.
Winemaking
The grapes were harvested at optimum maturity. Fermentation took place in stainless
steel tanks to retain the purity of fruit and fresh aromatics. The wine was matured on
fine lees in French oak barrels, of which 20% were new, for 13 months resulting in a full,
rich and rounded style.
Tasting Note
Elegant style of Chardonnay with a lovely weight from the lees ageing. Notes of citrus
are accompanied by elements of peach and pear on the full and beautifully balanced
palate with a touch of minerality on the finish. A petit Meursault.
