Remoissenet Pere & Fils Meursault Rouge 2018A rare, wonderful (and special single-vineyard) rouge from the village of Meursault, known mostly for its bold, savory Burgundies. Vineyards with more mineral-rich clay tend to be planted to Pinot Noir here, yet those plots are few and far between (and often located near the village’s neighbour, Volnay). Aromas of red fruit, baking spices, black cherry, forest floor. Earthy and suave, with fine-grained tannins.
100% Pinot Noir from a selection of (purchased) fruit from vineyard ‘En Marcausse,’
touching Volnay ‘Santenots du Milieu,’ one of the better plots for red grapes.
Soils are deep, mixing limestone scree and marne. The team at Remoissenet
farms it biodynamically and harvests, but does not own the land outright. Hand-harvested. Fermented on indigenous yeasts in opentop fermenters and aged in French oak barrels (350L), with approx. 30% new barrels. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
does produce red Burgundy from vineyards on the border with Volnay, mostly
in the region of lieu-dit ‘Santenots.
