This is finer, more 'edged' than the Aloxe Corton. Very tightly furled for now. Puckering acidity and tannins. In a good way. Dense, ripe, powerful fruit. This vineyard is situated at the top of the hill and shaded by the trees there, from the sun and the frost. Good stuff. Deep red fruits. Delicious. 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.

More expressive on the nose than perhaps you'd expect from traditional Pommard (not that I'm complaining), with lovely floral notes, fresh red fruit and approachable tannin on the finish. Crisp and thirst-quenching on the finish. Drinking range: 2018 - 2033 Rating: 17 Richard Hemming MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Feb 2018)

You can even step up to a decent Pommard without spending a fortune. 2016 Pommard, Les Vignots, Domaine Joël Rémy is an immensely rewarding a relatively forward expression from this famous village. 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.
