2016 Pinot Noir Domaine Joël Rémy
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
We first tasted this when it had been just bottled - whiff of smoke and wood on the nose, then a burst of bright acidity before the dark, ripe, rich blackberry fruit emerges. Some blueberry grip and restraint. Precise, great acidity. All in barrel this year and has lost no freshness at all. (Normally half the juice's elevage is done in stainless steel vats). Fresh, jolly and well balanced. Another very food Bourgogne Rouge from the Remy family. L&S (Oct 2017)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
A simple pinot noir from a good burgundy producer delivers much pleasure. This one is aged in oak, bright as crimson glass beads, with a fullness of flavour and a crunchy clarity.Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph(Oct 2018)
Domaine Joël Rémy
A family domaine that extends back five generations to 1853, but which Joël has modernised considerably over the past twenty years, installing new fermentation and ageing equipment. Over the years his vinifications have changed, and the wines have a lot more immediacy and precision. The quality of fruit is not in doubt, as lovers of his Bourgogne Rouge from year to year will attest, and a lot of work in the vineyard contributes to this, including leaf-thinning towards the end of the growing season. In the winery he has installed a vibrating sorting table, and the only filtering is by a lens filter at very low pressure to avoid de-naturing the wines. All offer quite striking value.
In 2016 Joël was joined full-time by both his children, Maxime and Manon. There is a renewed air of excitement and ambition here.
