Tasted at the domaine in November 2019, this had been bottled in August and was already showing really nicely. Attractive freshness when you might have accepted some excess and weight to the fruit. Quite tight lines in fact. Good pep - gentle grip and a piquant feel. Not fat - not too glossy. Good drive, lovely clipped feel. Pure, intense and well balanced. L&S (Nov 2019)

*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.

Bottled. Sweet, mild nose with no rough edges and well-judged tannin. Lots of energy even if not for a particularly long life. GV Drinking range: 2021 - 2026 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2020)

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.

PINOT NOIR for not too many pennies

Everyone likes a nice Pinot Noir these days. And everyone is right so to do. But Pinot Noir has an annoying habit of draining one's fiscal resources faster than desirable. Worry not. LEA & SANDEMAN continue to scour the globe in search of outstanding value and are glad to present a nicely-priced selection with all the nobility this variety can muster.
