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 Morey St Denis 1er Cru Les Ruchots 2021
From the vineyard ‘Les Ruchots,’ these vines were planted in 1969 on about a quarter of a hectare of flat land. The soil is ochre in color, lightly rocky and gives rich, silky, full-bodied wines with a long finish and a complex flavor profile.
Grapes are hand-harvested with sorting the vineyard and transferred to steel tank to undergo cold maceration, followed by a three-week long fermentation using 30% whole cluster. Pigeage and pumpovers are used when necessary, after which grapes are pressed and moved to 50% new barrels to age for about twelve months.
