2015 Volnay, 1er Cru, Clos des Chenes, Xavier Monnot

$700

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.

92 Wine Spectator

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.

Description

Xavier Monnot

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.
