Domaine René Monnier was founded in 1723. The Domaine is now in the hands of the tenth generation of the family who own 18 hectares of vineyards in the best crus of the Côte de Beaune, one of the largest privately owned Domaines in the region. 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.
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 have a high limestone content, retaining moisture in dry weather, but also offering good drainage in cooler weather.
Whole bunches were carefully selected and then softly pressed, followed by a static settling of the must prior to fermentation. The wine was aged in oak barrels, 30% of which were new oak for a period of 13 months.
Serve chilled with shellfish, especially lobster and scallops.
