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.

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. The soils in the vineyard are chalk mixed with clay, retaining moisture in
dry weather, but also offering good drainage in cooler weather.
Winemaking
The grapes were meticulously sorted and were gently pressed as whole bunches,
followed by static settling of the must before fermentation. Traditional vinification
methods were used, fermentation took place in barrel and the wine was then matured
in oak barrels, of which 25% were new oak, for 14 months. Delicate bâtonnage took
place, which imparted texture and complexity. The wine was lightly fined and filtered,
before being estate bottled by gravity.
