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.

From a single parcel of about a third of a hectare, planted in 1945 on deep sandy-clay soils with large, round pebbles, these are hand-harvested with sorting in the vineyard. The grapes undergo pre-fermentation cold maceration, followed by a three-week fermentation with 20% whole bunches, with pigeage or pumpovers when necessary.
Only indigenous yeasts are used. Some of the lees are left in contact with the wine for 1 year. Aged for one year in oak before light filtration and bottling.
