  • TASTING NOTE: "This is an important cuvée for Xavier Monnot. His 2.5ha holding comes from three sectors, clay at the foot of the slope, a hummock in the middle and plateau at the top – interestingly (to me at any rate) he stirs the lees of the wine from the top of the slope but not the bottom. The blend is a glowing lively primrose colour, a touch of sulphur again. As well as the weight there is a tighter mineral quality, definitely the salinity, great ageing potential, weight and austerity together. Very good tension at the finish. Thoroughly recommended." Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy
  • ABOUT THE WINE: Les Chevalières is a lieu-dit lying behind the town of Meursault in the valley leading towards Auxey-Duresses. It is one of several lieux-dits in Meursault that perform above their official “village” level status. The soil of Les Chevalières is very stony and the wine typically displays a strong mineral character, firm acidity, and piercing tension. There is always a big spine of acidity in Chevalières," says Monnot. After hand-harvesting, grapes are lightly crushed by foot before pressing. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in barrels using indigenous yeasts. During barrel aging, the wines undergo full malolactic fermentation and bâtonnage occurs at the end of the alcoholic fermentation. Aged from 12 to 14 months in 15-20% percent new French oak. 
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Xavier Monnot can trace his winegrowing heritage back six generations to 1723. Xavier took over his grandfathers winery, Domaine René Monnier in 1994 after completing his oenological studies. He began replanting parcels with a combination of selection massale from old vines and new clones, and updated the cellar with modern equipment. In 2005 Xavier began bottling his wines under his own label. Xavier is meticulous about treating each plot personally; all grapes are manually harvested. His winemaking style emphasizes purity of fruit, elegance, complexity and a full, silky mouthfeel. The approach is ‘lutte raisonnée’: restricting yields for quality and concentration and intervening as little as possible so as not to upset the natural environment.
