Remi has just over 7 hectares of vines in and around Morey-St.Denis. The vines are much older than average, with all of his Vieilles Vignes village bottlings being at least 50 years old, and the Morey St Denis over 60. This gives a natural concentration to the wines which are both well structured and elegant. Remi is a firm believer that wines are made in the vineyard and this shows through in the pure, concentrated style of the wines and the cautious use of new oak.
Domaine Remi Jeanniard Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes 2021
100% Pinot Noir. Hand-harvested in mid-September from three parcels: Les Chardannes (planted 1920-1975), Les Drazeys (planted 1925 and 1960), and Les Herbues (planted 1950).
The grapes undergo pre-fermentation cold soak for better extraction where 20% are whole cluster, then followed up by three weeks fermentation in stainless steel using indigenous yeasts. Aged in oak barrels for one year with 20% new oak and light filtration.
“Tank/cask sample. Elegant nose with red summer fruits, mulberry and a ripe fruit feel. Ferrous and iodine notes, moderate acidity and plush tannins. Already approachable.” 2025-2031 16 jancisrobinson.com (AC)
