CHOREY LES BEAUNE
2017 Les Beaumonts Domaine Joël Rémy
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
|Village||Chorey les Beaune|
After the Brilliant Bourgogne Rouge, this is darker, drier and more intense - tangibly more serious. Some hawthorn and a damson edge which mingles with the sweeter, dark-red fruit well. All motors along nicely with a good clean flow. Persistent. Good energy. Lots to enjoy. Pretty wine with a serious side. Drinking range: 2020 - 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.
Wonderful price! Bright cherry red. Correct, light fruit. A hint of damp rope and rather drying finish but no disaster. Drinking range: 2020 - 2023 Rating: 15.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2019)
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.
