2008 Remoissenet Père et Fils, Saint-RomainOct. 2010
I remember this being very tasty from barrel last year. Forward, stony aromas. This has a lovely density and richness that is well balanced by the acidity – bravo, still lovely.
2007 Remoissenet Père et Fils, Meursault CharmesOct. 2010
Aromatic width and some density. Likewise there is a depth and density to the palate that is beautifully balanced by the acidity. Lovely penetrating intensity into the finish.
2006 Remoissenet Père et Fils, Bienvenues-Bâtard-MontrachetOct. 2010
Wide aromas that are more floral than fruit-driven. Full, with just enough acidity despite the opulence that surrounds it. This was a wow wine for its first couple of years – it is now more subdued, hoping for a far-off day of glory.
2008 Remoissenet Père et Fils, Beaune Les GrèvesOct. 2010
There’s a core of tight red fruit on the nose. This has plenty of tannin but also is underpinned by lovely fruit. Well-judged acidity too.
2008 Remoissenet Père et Fils, Gevrey-ChambertinOct. 2010
The nose has plenty of toasted bread. More supple in the mouth than the Grèves, and shows plenty of penetrating, high-toned fruit. This wine really insinuates itself – lovely.
2007 Remoissenet Père et Fils, Chambolle-Musigny Les EchangesOct. 2010
Concentrated fruit aromas – more jammy, yet also complex with an undertow of something much prettier. Lots of width. Today the tannin texture is a little intrusive, but the flavour is very good. Good length and tasty, but this is a wine that needs 5-10 years to come together.
2007 Remoissenet Père et Fils, Clos de VougeotOct. 2010
A little diffuse perhaps but complex aromas that eventually deliver an undertow of coffee. Cushioned, complex, some tannin but intensity too. A little mineral in the finish.
2008 Remoissenet Père et Fils, Clos de VougeotOct. 2010
After the 2007 there are more immediate and finer red fruit aromas. I love the width and the relative lack of padding. Very long and understated. Super.
1992 Remoissenet Père et Fils, Chassagne-Montrachet MorgeotMar. 2010
From a jeroboam with dinner! Golden but not oxidised – savoury, biscuity. Much more mineral and muscular than I expected – no ‘ample’ 1992 here – complex, balanced and very satisfying. I ‘needed’ 3 more glasses…
