Domaine Monnot Volnay 1er Cru "Clos des Chenes" 2014

A sensual and pure bouquet with black cherries, blueberry and violets aromas, well defined and seeming to "billow" from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and crisp acidity, good structure here with a grippy, almost Pommard-like on the slightly savory finish.

    THE STORY: Xavier Monnot is a leading producer in Meursault whose winemaking style emphasizes purity of fruit, elegance, and complexity. Xavier can trace his mother’s ancestors, the Monniers, back to 1723, with six generations of winegrowing. Xavier took over in 1994 after completing his oenological studies and began replanting parcels with a combination of selection massale from old vines and new clones, and updated the cellar with modern equipment. Prior to the release of the 2005 vintage, the property was known as Domaine René Monnier (Xavier's grandfather). In 2005, along with improvements in the vineyard and cellar, Xavier began bottling his wines under his own label.
