This 1er Cru is a delicate but firm wine showing woody and almond notes. Elegant and silky, it has a gorgeous bright color.
|Xavier Monnot is a 17-hectare estate, all family-owned, located in Meursault. About 50% of the vineyards are planted in white, 50% in red. The production though is 65% white.
Domaine Xavier Monnot’s vineyards are very spread out, covering most of the Cote de Beaune starting in Beaune 1er Cru “Cent Vignes” and stretching all the way to Maranges 1er Cru in the Cote Chalonnaise. All the vines are hand-harvested and new oak is used with a lot of caution.
