2005 Remoissenet, Bourgogne Renommée
Since mid-2005, Remoissenet have been under new ownership – it has to be all the better from a quality perspective as good premier crus from great vintages e.g. 1999 were at best dull and lifeless. What better way to start the assessment of the new regime than with their most basic product? The colour is medium cherry-red. The nose is rather good; fresh, ripe, slightly powdery red cherry – no confiture – some high tones and nice depth. The palate is rather fresh with plenty of mouthwatering acidity. The fruit is high-toned in the mouth and (for a 2005 at least) just a little tart. The relatively fine grained tannin is there if you search. Overall much fresher than many fruit-bomb 2005’s and if that’s your style, at this price it’s very much recommended.
