93pts Jasper Morris

Little yellow touches to the colour. Lightly vegetal but with plenty of depth to the nose here, clearly there is a lot more to tease out. Plenty of muscle to this Charmes, some of the struck match, a little saline, a good long finish. A wine of considerable character, like its maker. Good stuff.

93pts Vinous

The 2020 Meursault Les Charmes 1er Cru has a perfumed bouquet with citrus peel, chai tea, hints of white chocolate and a touch of stem ginger. There is ample weight on the palate, quite sapid with a fine line of acidity, just a hint of green olive towards the finish that fans out with confidence. This is a fine Meursault-Charmes.
Barrel Sample: 91-93

93pts Wine & Spirits
Super complex, this wine hints at the early harvest of 2020 in its vegetal undertones of green pear skin and persimmon. Then it opens with a day of air to succulent, juicy pear flavors, lush and racy in parallel. A vibrant wine from vines planted in 1961 and 1989, this has a long life ahead.

91pts Wine Spectator

A chiseled, linear white, this evokes butterscotch, lemon oil, apple pie and lemon zest flavors. Balanced in its slim profile, ending with lemon zest and baking spice accents. Best from 2023.

Winery Description

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.”
