Displays aromas and flavors of ripe melon, hazelnut, and lemon custard. Aging in 15-20% percent small French oak barrels lends notes of toast and vanilla. With its richness, texture, and toasted flavors, pair with light fish and shellfish and can counterbalance cream-based sauces. Lends itself well to grilled fish, starches, butter, and toasted nuts.

Le Limozin is a lieu-dit situated just below the Meursault premier cru Les Genevrières and is named after a stream that used to flow near the vineyards. It is one of several lieux-dits in Meursault that perform above their official “village” level status. Le Limozin typically gives a wine that is broad and expansive thanks to a mix of clay and limestone soil and Monnot’s old vines (planted in 1961 and 1976) deliver an especially concentrated version. Aged from 12 to 14 months in 15-20% percent new French oak. 


Xavier Monnot is a leading producer in Meursault whose winemaking style emphasizes purity of fruit, elegance, and complexity. 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. 

Domaine Xavier Monnot is a 42-acre estate in Meursault with vineyards stretching from Beaune to Maranges. 60% of the Domaine's production is white and 40% red with several premier crus in Meursault, Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet, Beaune, Volnay, and Maranges. Xavier believes in maintaining an average vine age of 30 to 40 years and practices lutte raisonnée (“reasoned struggle”).
