2018 Remoissenet Chambolle-Musigny 'Les Charmes' 1er Cru

$149.95

You’re going to fall hard for this beautiful, modern premier cru in Chambolle. It displays absolutely classic aromas of cherries, strawberry and gingerbread, and China black tea. You’ll like this one.

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.

The 2018 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Charmes is also open and expressive, delivering a generous nose of rose petals, plums, berries and spices, followed by a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and expansive palate that's lively and precise, concluding with a youthfully chalky finish.
