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.

The ancient Beaune négociant Remoissenet (ruh-mwah-sun-eh) has such an impressive history. Not only have they been in business since the late 19th century, but they have also had new life pumped into them via a super-rich, quality-minded investment group, and finally (if not most importantly) because their cellar houses an inventory of more than a million back vintage bottles. This is a winery with absolutely fanatical quality obsession that shows in their pricing. Remoissenet wines are truly great, but never cheap, à la Maison Leroy. Why? Because in Burgundy, where it is very easy for a farmer to make a fine living bottling their own wines, a top négoce has to pay top dollar for both fruit and finished wine—they’re essentially bribing great growers NOT to go into business for themselves.
