The grapes to produce Bourgogne Pinot Noir Domaine René Monnier were vinified using traditional methods. Prefermentation maceration lasted for six days to extract aromas, flavour and fine tannins. Bourgogne Pinot Noir Domaine René Monnier took place in stainless steel tanks over two weeks followed by maturation in French oak barrels for 10 months, of which 30% was new.
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.
Domaine Rene 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 excessive use of oak, while the reds are the epitome of fine Burgundy demonstrating the balanced, silky style of this house.
