Domaine René Monnier was founded in 1723. The Domaine is now in the hands of the tenth generation of the family who own 16 hectares of vineyards in the best crus of the Côte de Beaune. Great attention is paid to limiting the yields in the vineyards. This guarantees the best possible quality of juice, with the correct balance between fruit and acidity. René Monnier's wines are well known in three star Michelin restaurants.
Grapes: 100% Chardonnay grapes from Le Limozin vineyard.
Note: The village of Meursault also hosts one of the three glorious feasts of Burgundy during the third weekend of November. On the Monday after the Hospices de Beaune sale some 600 local growers and guests gather at noon for the Paulée de Meursault, an end-of-harvest feast revived in 1920 by Comte Jules Lafon. Everybody brings their own bottles to share with other tables.
Vinification: Part in new French oak barrels and balance in stainless steel tanks. 1/3 of the wine is aged in oak for 8-10 months.
Colour: Light gold with green tinges
Taste: This dry wine has fine lemony fruit with well integrated oak and a lovely length
Serve: Chilled, with chicken or veal in cream sauces and fish dishes
