Vintage Description

Many of our customers who have travelled to Burgundy have met the irrepressible Bernard Reppolt, Director General at the completely re-energised Remoissenet Pere et Fils. There has been a huge investment programme at the house since its purchase in 2005 by the Milstein brothers, re-furbished cellars, vineyard purchases, new long term contracts for fruit and of course a new winemaker in the form of Claudie Jobard who is really finding her feet.

Remoissenet are on outstanding form and are starting to attract the plaudits that their investment deserves. The emphasis here is on lots of flavour but with no shortage of finesse. Fruit is sourced from a combination of their own vineyards and on long term contracts. There is lots to be excited about at this distinguished house.

Tasting Notes

Allen Meadows, Burghound
I tasted this trip with commercial director Bernard Repolt and winemaker Claudie Jobard as Pierre-Antoine Rovani was out of the country. As the scores and commentaries suggest, Remoissenet continues to make excellent progress and is now producing some first-rate burgundy. As to the wines Jobard noted that the 2012s 'should be accessible young as the tannins are both supple and ripe. The wines possess good concentration and fine balance so they're already drinking well.'

Allen Meadows, Burghound 93/100
A very generously wooded nose frames very ripe yet wonderfully fresh and expressive notes of cassis, plum, black currant and a broad array of spice nuances. There is a highly seductive mouth feel to the velvet-textured, powerful and robust big-bodied flavors that display plenty of both muscle and minerality on the exceptionally persistent finish. As one might reasonably expect this will need plenty of cellar time and would not make an especially good choice for early consumption.

Very deep colour. A lusty, powerful wine, needs plenty of time to round out. Dense, rich and will be magnificent with age.
