2019 Remoissenet Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru

$249.95

The legendary grand cru vineyard on the hill of Corton! Aromas of yellow fruits, herbs, demi-sel butter, light smoke. Full-bodied, refined; very long. One of the grandest grand cru white Burgundies.

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.
