SAVIGNY LES BEAUNE
2018 Fourneaux Domaine Joël Rémy
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
|Village||Savigny les Beaune|
After the Chorey this is more high-toned - more tightly packed. In fact this is really quite ‘senior’ feeling. Lovely gentle tannins - add shape and drive - but no dryness. Good fruit weight - less sweet than Chorey - and there is more power here and a more classic 'Pinot Noir from Burgundy' feel and profile. Good power and drive - but mouth-watering too. A super effort from Joel and family. 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.
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.
