2015 Remoissenet Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru

$669.00

From this acclaimed and quality-fanatical house in Beaune comes this shining example of Batard-Montrachet, dressed in a flattering pale yellow robe, with notes of fresh butter, chopped green herbs, minerals, and mirabelle plums and figs. Grand Cru, all the way, shot through with an electricity that can only come from one of the world's greatest sites for Chardonnay.

When we learned we would be visiting Remoissenet (ruh-mwah-sun-eh) on our last Burgundy adventure, we knew we were in for something special. In business since the late 19th century, this terrific négociant was given new life by an investment group that bought the [pharaonic] cellars and everything in them, including more than a million bottles of older inventory going back to the 1950s. When the big guns came in, they installed Pierre Rovani to run the show. Pierre – who has perhaps tasted more Burgundies than any of his contemporaries – was once the Burgundy critic for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. The “Burgundy Authority” is now seated at the head of the table, cementing Remoissenet’s intentions to make their mark in dramatic fashion.
