ProducerNote

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

A wet winter and spring built soil water reserves which was important for the

forthcoming growing season. A cold snap in February allowed the vines to rest and

the sap to descend. Warm weather in April increased the vine's development, which

continued throughout the hot, dry growing season. Harvest took place under good

conditions producing exceptionally healthy fruit. 2018 is an excellent vintage for both

quantity and quality.

Vineyard

The vineyards 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

Picked at optimum maturity, the grapes were vinified using traditional methods. Prefermentation maceration lasted for six days to extract aromas, flavour and fine

tannins. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks over two weeks followed by

maturation in French oak barrels for 10 months, of which 30% were new
