Xavier Monnot Pommard Les Vignots 2020


In Stock

“The 2020 Pommard Les Vignots has a lively, minty bouquet that is well defined, quite floral with iris flowers emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, quite structured with a vibrant saline finish that lingers. This must be the I’dark horse” of Monnot’s range. Drinking window: 2024-2045. 91-93 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.”
