Remoissenet Pere & Fils Gevrey-Chambertin 2014
- Burgundy,Cote de Nuits
- Pinot Noir
Here too there is just enough wood to notice as it easily allows the pure, cool, airy and elegant red currant fruit, earth, forest floor and humus aromas to shine. Once again there is fine volume to the vibrant middle weight flavors that culminate in a rustic and serious finish. This frank and bold effort isn't refined but it is balanced.- BH87~90
Maison Remoissenet Père et Fils has more than a century of winemaking history in Burgundy, France and is one of Beaune's wealthiest domaines. The estate was established in 1877, at a 14th-Century building in Beaune and is best known for its grand and premier Cru Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
Remoissenet Père et Fils owns 13 hectares (32 acres) of vineyard land in Beaune and Gevrey-Chambertin. The estate also purchases fruit from growers, but by quality, not quantity, with bonuses offered where quality exceeds expectations. Grand cru wines, both white and red, can see up to 100 percent new French oak in the aging process, and reds are neither fined nor filtered.
In 2005, Maison Remoissenet Père et Fils sold to a group including New York financier Edward Millstein, Toronto's Todd Halpern, and Maison Louis Jadot, when Roland Remoissenet retired at 75 years old. The sale included the firm, vineyards, famed cellar and everything in it, including old vintages of grand cru wines such as Montrachet and Bâtard-Montrachet.
Former president of Louis Jadot, Bernard Répolt, heads the consortium of owners of Remoissenet Père et Fils and has expanded production and received positive press for the heightened quality of wines produced. - Information from Wine Searcher
