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.

Monsieur Remi Jeanniard’s inaugural vintage is 2004 with 7 hectares of vines. Domaine Remi Jeanniard own properties in the heart of Côte de Nuits, with plantings in Morey St. Denis, Gevrey Chambertin, and Chambolle Musigny. He practices sustainable farming including pruning in Spring to control yields, green harvest in July and refrains from Chemical Fertilizers. Grapes are handpicked and fermented only using natural yeast. Bottling is done without filtering nor fining. SO2 is used minimally, choosing instead to preserve the wine’s freshness with carbonic gasses.
The vines are much older than average, with all of his Vielles Vignes village bottlings being at least 50 years old, and the Morey St Denis over 60. Most of the work here is in the vineyard, no chemical fertilizers, harvest by hand. Vinification pretty traditional: natural yeast, just 12 months in oak with relatively small percentages of new oak being used. Bottled with very little SO2 and without filtering and fining.
