Xavier Monnot is a leading wine maker in Meursault whose winemaking style emphasizes prurity 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 strated 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 & cellar, he began bottling his wines under his own label.
