CHOREY LES BEAUNE
2016 Les Beaumonts Domaine Joël Rémy
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
|Village||Chorey les Beaune|
Lovely, sexy dark fruit. Perky - pinging zip. Morello cherry - but energetic - and nice weight. Some dark glossy berries. Concentrated. Quite polished, but not too ripe. Nice, a tension here a tautness. 23 September was an early harvest here - explains the zing somewhat - and was certainly a great decision. L&S (Oct 2017)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Simple red fruit with better concentration than their Bourgogne but not much range beyond basic bramble flavours. Tight structure on the finish. Drinking range: 2019 - 2022 Rating: 15.5 Richard Hemming MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Feb 2018)
There is plenty of fun to be had and the fruit is joyous, juicy and pure.Matthew Jukes www.matthewjukes.com(Jan 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.
A fine selection from the majestic slopes of the Côte de Beaune.
