Whole bunches to produce Puligny Montrachet Domaine René Monnier were carefully selected and then gently pressed, followed by a static settling of the must prior to fermentation. Puligny Montrachet Domaine René Monnier fermentation took place in new French oak. The wine was aged in oak barrels, 25% of which were new oak for 14 months, during which delicate bâtonnage of the lees took place imparting complexity and texture to the palate. The wine went through malolactic fermentation, prior to being lightly fined and filtered. Estate bottled using gravity.
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.
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.

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.
