Domaine 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. Monnot makes 13 different wines. This extraordinary example is from a small parcel called "Close des Chenes" in the village of Volnay.
"Macerated cherry and berry flavors are allied to a dense wall of tannins in this muscular Volnay. Still, the fruit lingers on the finish, leaving a lasting, sweet impression. Best from 2022 through 2033. 400 cases made, 150 cases imported." - BS - Wine Spectator
90-92+ Points: "The 2015 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes has 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. There is certainly good potential here, pipping the 2014 in terms of quality." Neal Martin – The Wine Advocate
2017 Xavier Monnot Bourgogne Pinot Noir
The 2017 Bourgogne Pinot Noir displays a rich bouquet of ripe cherries and licorice, followed by a medium-bodied, fleshy and succulent palate that—like its white counterpart—is adapted to near-term consumption. William Kelley - The Wine Advocate
