Xavier Monnot, imported by Bobby Kacher, is a 17-hectare estate based in Meursault. I was unfamiliar with the producer until the other night when my brother-in-law showed up with one of their bottles. Les Chevalieres is a village level vineyard in Meursault located near Auxey-Duresses and Monnot owns 2.5 hectares in the site. The 2005 Les Chevalieres by Monnot is very good. The wine shows some toasted oak on the nose, but it is not obtrusive. In the mouth, this medium-bodied wine is mineral and well balanced. While not a show stopper, the wine was typical of Meursault and enjoyable.
