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 Vieilles Vignes 2021
A very well crafted and quite delicious Pinot Noir with well defined brambly red fruit mixed with savoury, earthy aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and well balanced acidity which creates a harmonious and silky texture.
From three vineyards: ‘Très Girard’ (planted in 1920), Clos Solon Très ( planted 1945), and ‘Clos des Ormes’ (planted 1951 and makes up 2/3 of the blend). All the grapes are hand-harvested in mid-October and sorted in the vineyard. Aged for one year in oak barrels with 20% new oak – light filtration.
The Remi Jeanniard family estate was created in 2004, with 5.8 hectares of vines across the villages of Morey Saint Denis, Gevrey Chambertin and Chambolle Musigny in the heart of the Cote de Nuits. The philosphy is to show respect to the land to create wine that reflects the variety, vintage and fantastic terroir.
