2015 Remoissenet Le Montrachet Grand Cru

$1,099.00

Montrachet. The legend. As good as Chardonnay gets. Leave it to the fanatics in the cellar at Remoissenet to do true justice to this hallowed vineyard. This gleams with gorgeous Chardonnay fruit, meyer lemon butter, white blossoms, chalk, hazelnut, and lime blossom. The length and sheer complexity here simply can’t be faked. The true definition of catching lightning in the bottle, from a great vintage, no less!

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.
