Wine Description:
Since 1720, the Monnier family has shaped their Meursault domaine, spanning 17 hectares in the "Côte de Beaune." A rarity producing both red and white wines with equal mastery, Jean-Claude and Nicholas Monnier, drawing from ancestral wisdom, meticulously craft Burgundian classics. Whether Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Volnay, Pommard, or Beaune, their wines reflect terroir and a hands-off winemaking philosophy. Vines aged 25 to 60 years yield elegant wines, marked by complexity and personality. With care and tradition, the Monniers honor their heritage, ensuring each bottle encapsulates the essence of Burgundy's finest appellations.

Wine Expert Note:

In the glass, this Meursault displays a beautiful golden color, hinting at its richness and depth. On the nose, it offers a complex bouquet of ripe orchard fruits such as apple and pear, accompanied by notes of toasted almonds, hazelnuts, and a subtle touch of vanilla. These aromas are further enhanced by a delicate floral character, adding a layer of elegance to the wine. On the palate, the La Barre Meursault showcases a harmonious balance between its fruit, oak, and acidity. The ripe fruit flavors continue to shine, with the addition of citrus notes that provide a refreshing lift. The oak influence is well-integrated, contributing to a creamy texture and adding layers of complexity. The wine's vibrant acidity provides a lively backbone, ensuring a long and satisfying finish. This Meursault is a prime example of the region's renowned Chardonnay wines, showcasing both power and finesse. It is a wine that can be enjoyed now, but also has the potential to age gracefully, allowing its flavors to further develop and evolve over time.

Domaine Antonin Guyon Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru 'Sous Frétille' is a Premier Cru white Burgundy made by Antonin Guyon.
