Soft and silky, showing great class and underlying power.
Remi has just over 7 hectares of vines in and around Morey-St.Denis. The vines are much older than average, with all of his Vieilles Vignes village bottlings being at least 50 years old, and the Morey St Denis over 60. This gives a natural concentration to the wines which are both well-structured and elegant. Remi is a firm believer that wines are made in the vineyard and this shows through in the pure, concentrated style of the wines and the cautious use of new oak.
2018 was a hot vintage, beaten only in recent times by the 2003s. However, many domaines have since learnt how to manage hot vintages and have been able to make ripe but well balanced wines. On the whole the Pinots are full, voluptuous and incredibly easy to drink. Maybe not wines to lay down for extended ageing but although they are tasting very well now the Domaines who managed their acidities have produced wines which will also age well in the medium term.
Suggested food and wine pairing: Boeuf Bourguignon, Coq Au Vin.
