Xavier Monnot Volnay 1er Cru - Clos des Chenes 2019 / 750 ml.

Item#: 56767

WS9393 pts. - Wine & Spirits - 10/21
Xavier Monnot farms two acres in Clos des Chênes, one acre planted in 1936, the other in 1978. Those old vines produced a dark and meaty Volnay in 2019, perfumed up front, then calming to red cherry succulence in a firm finish. The wine seems to harness the heat of the vintage and direct it into potential energy, well worth following over the next five to ten years.

Hints of smoky lapsang souchong tea leaves and anise accent ripe yet zesty blackberry and cassis in this full-bodied, supple red. It’s a rich, rounded Pinot Noir held upright by zesty darts of acidity and finishing in pools of soft, silky tannins. While a bit nervous in youth it should hit peak from 2024 through 2030 and hold further. (Anna Lee C. Iijima)

The 2019 Volnay Clos des Chênes 1er Cru has a well-defined bouquet featuring overt floral notes of rose petal and pressed irises. There is a subtle confit element that becomes apparent with aeration. The palate is plush and fleshy on the entry, and there is a fine bead of acidity to keep it balanced. A polished Clos des Chênes with a little spice on the finish. It will require 3–4 years in bottle, like the Beaune Toussaints, but it has the substance to age well for another 12–15 years, possibly more. (Neal Martin)

Where It's From

Country / France

View more wines from France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.

Trapet’s 2019 Chambertin Grand Cru is a profound wine in the making, and it can keeps company with vintage’s finest. Wafting from the glass with deep aromas of cherries and cassis, complemented by notions of raw cocoa, blood orange, smoked meats, rich soil tones and spices, it’s full-bodied, multidimensional and complete, with a weightless, elegant profile despite its prodigious concentration, its structuring tannins entirely concealed in an ample core of lively, vibrant fruit.
VN94+94–96 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2020
The 2019 Chambertin Grand Cru has an intense bouquet of blackberry, briar and raspberry, interlaced with wilted rose petals and light ferrous aromas. The palate is very supple and voluminous, fleshy and generous, but maybe not quite as pixelated as the Latricières-Chambertin. It fans out wonderfully, though, and the lightly spiced finish just misses the intellect of Latricières. This represents a very serious Chambertin, and I would not be surprised if it lands at the top of my banded score.

There are around 30 barrels of Trapet’s 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Village, a lovely wine that mingles notes of wild berries with hints of dark chocolate, exotic spices and violets. Medium to full-bodied, lively and concentrated, it’s deep and lively, with powdery tannins and a long, perfumed finish. This derives from eight different parcels spread throughout the appellation.
VN90+90–92 pts. - Vinous - Dec 2020
The 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Village is vibrant on the nose, featuring generous raspberry and cranberry and a touch of chalk dust and singed earth, quite complex for a "mere" Village Cru. The palate is medium-bodied with filigreed tannins and a fine bead of acidity. Very elegant and refined, and the pure red berry fruit is lent spiciness by the 30% stem addition. Excellent.

Unwinding in the glass with notes of blackberries, cassis, dark chocolate and spices, the 2019 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Pruliers is medium to full-bodied, rich and textural, its muscular chassis of tannin cloaked in an enveloping core of fruit, concluding with a mineral finish. This is quite a velvety, charming rendition of Chevillon’s Pruliers.
VN92+92–94 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2020
The 2019 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Pruliers 1er Cru has more freshness and delineation on the nose compared to the Les Perrières, and a little more focus, offering mineral-rich red berry fruit. The palate is very well balanced with nicely integrated oak. The terroir expression is more articulated here compared to some of Chevillon’s other Premier Crus and there is plenty of tension on the sorbet-fresh finish. Excellent.

The 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Prieur Bas displays a mixture of red and black fruit on the nose, touches of brown spice and espresso emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with granular tannins, a fine bead of acidity and a dash of white pepper and clove toward the finish. I like the focus and harmony of this Gevrey, and it should age well after 4–5 years in bottle to absorb the new wood. (Neal Martin)
RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 20th Jan 2022
The 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Prieur Bas unwinds in the glass with aromas of sweet berries and cherries mingled with warm spices, licorice and peonies. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and fleshy, with powdery tannins and an elegantly muscular profile, it shows considerable promise for the cellar. (William Kelley)
