The name Remoissenet for serious collectors stands for refined, classic Burgundy wines. We absolutely fell in love with this 2016 Remo. Vosne Romanee. It bursts out of the glass with amazing freshness and cherry blossom. It glides across the palate with smooth sensibility and elegance. James Suckling noted "rich and velvety with crisp acidity." Grab a case to enjoy now and through the next 10 years.
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.
