Vineyard Cent Vignes

Very different site to where Joel's Avaux comes from. This parcel is not on the Pommard side. There is much more pep and bounce. Good juiciness and intensity. But there is more structure too an almost angular feel at this stage. Solid again, but more power here and drive than the Avaux - good stuff! Drinking range: 2019 - 2025 L&S (Nov 2018)

*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.

Light, perfumed fruit. Spicy, lightly rustic but utterly honest fruit. GV Drinking range: 2021 - 2027 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - 2019)

The 2017 Beaune Les Cents Vignes 1er Cru has a more sophisticated bouquet than the Savigny-lès-Beaune; red cherries, bergamot tea and wild strawberry unfurl in the glass. The tart palate is well balanced with fine grip, offering red cherry, bitter lemon and light stony notes toward the linear finish. Fine, classically made Beaune.

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.
