A rich, elegantly styled wine with attractive fruit and a wonderful long finish.
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.
Traditional Burgundian vinification in open vats with twice daily pigeages during fermentation. Aged in oak barrels (30% new oak) for 16 months.
Beautiful integration of oak with rich, elegantly styled fruit and a balanced acidity through to a wonderful long, butterscotch, well sustained finish.
Chilled with veal in cream sauces, fish and lobster.
