Xavier Monnot Meursault Les Chevalieres 2020


In Stock

“The 2020 Meursault Les Chevalieres is a step up from the Monthélie as it demonstrates much more tension and complexity on the nose: hazelnut and citrus peel, a slight tertiary quality. The palate is well balanced, not deep or intense, but fresh and delineated with just enough salinity on the finish. Drink over the next decade. Drinking window: 2024-2032. 89-91 points

Xavier Monnot told me, “I love this vintage” when I visited him in Meursault. He picked from August 20 and finished on August 29. I really admired his 2020 Chassagne-Montrachet En Remilly with its cheeky touch of Japanese shiso leaf on the finish. The reds were de-stemmed and quite opulent in style; the Pommard Les Vignots and Volnay Clos des Chênes are well worth seeking out. These wines are bottled under natural cork.”
