Wine Advocate 87 points - The 2013 Meursault le Limozin, which sees 25% new oak, has a lifted orange rind and apricot blossom-scented bouquet that is straightforward but nicely defined. The palate is fresh and well balanced with lime and red apples interlacing on the pretty finish. Not bad at all - drink this over the next 6-8 years. (Dec 2014)
Meursault “Le Limozin” comes from a 1 hectare vineyard that borders “Les Charmes” and “Les Poruzots”. Displaying delicate aromas of flowers and fruits, this wine has bright color and an ample mellow taste.
|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.
