Light golden colour. The nose picks up a flinty minerality along with vanilla, hazelnut and toasty notes. Honey and peach flavours complement a rich and mouth-filling wine. The shallow soils force the vines to struggle, producing excellent and complex wine with a long and mineral finish.

Xavier Monnot is a leading winemaker in Meursault whose winemaking style emphasizes purity of fruit, elegance and complexity. Xavier can trace his mother’s ancestors, the Monnier, back to 1723, with six generations of winegrowing. He took over the vineyard in 1994 and started replanting parcels with a combination of old vines and new clones and upgraded the cellar with modern equipment. In 2005, along with improvements in the vineyard and cellar, he began bottling his wines under his own label.

Xavier is very meticulous about treating each plot personally and has a 'lutte raisonnée' (low intervention and low/no pesticides) philosophy. All grapes are manually harvested. He is restricting yields for quality and concentration and intervening as little as possible.
Should be served between 12 to 14 degrees.
Foie gras, shrimps, lobster, chicken, veal, rabbit. Cheeses: Epoisses, blue, goat.
