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 Chardonnay grapes were grown in the named plot of Le Limozin, which sits
alongside some of the best Premier Cru vineyards in Meursault. The vines are farmed
according to "La lutte raisonnée", using sustainable agriculture methods, reducing the
use of chemicals in order to respect the land and its environment. 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 optimal maturity and carefully sorted. The wine was 100%
fermented in French oak, of which 30% was new. The wine went through malolactic
conversion and underwent delicate ‘bâtonnage’- stirring of the fine lees – gently
imparting texture and further complexity to the resulting wine. It was then aged in
French oak barrels (30% new) for 14 months. The wine was lightly fined and filtered prior
to being estate bottled by gravity.
Tasting Note
This elegant wine shows a buttery, toasty and honeyed nose with delicate aromas of
pear and apricot combined with floral nuances. Smooth and creamy on the palate
with beautifully integrated oak and a lovely long finish.
