About the Wine
Remoissenet Père et Fils is a reference point for refined Burgundy wines. This ancient estate, connected by mortar and stone to the medieval walls of Beaune, is for serious collectors linked by vine and bottle to Burgundy’s hallowed past and its exciting future. A leading light in Beaune for generations, this 150-year old estate is now more than ever the definitive source for the finest wines Burgundy has to offer. The proof, of course, is in each bottle. Whether “basic” Bourgogne to hallowed grand cru, Remoissenet wines show a suave elegance in perfume and texture, with a finish made of silk.
In 2005, Remoissenet started the next chapter in its generations-long history. With new owners and renewed leadership under Pierre-Antoine Rovani (formerly of the Wine Advocate) and Bernard Repolt (Maison Louis Jadot), the estate is bringing more vineyards under its own roof and importantly, raising the qualitative bar for itself and its vine-growing partners across the board.
Wandering through the 150-year-old estate’s hand-carved cellars is to travel back in time, each cool bottle telling a story of vintages past, wars won, anniversaries celebrated. Yet among these bottled memories are barrels of stories to come: older vines tended according to biodynamic methods, unique terroirs selected with the utmost care and in micro-quantities.
Santenay is one of the southernmost villages of the Côte de Beaune. The 2016 Santenay Banc is born from a selection of fruit from village-level vineyards averaging 20-30 years in age from a mix of limestone and marl based soils. Less than five percent of the Santenay appellation is dedicated to white Burgundy grapes; this bottling is rare but more importantly quintessential white Burgundy.
Tasting Notes: 100% Chardonnay. Aromas of white flowers, lemon curd, fresh nuts, crushed stones. Plush, fruity, refined. Perfect alongside grilled chicken, soft-rind French cheeses, and sushi
