A longstanding, small producer in Morey Saint Denis who can be traced back as far as the early 1800's . The domaine has reduced in size since Chantal Remy took over in 1998, now standing at only 1.5Ha. More recently his son Florian has been overseeing winemaking, as of 2013.
These wines are very traditional in style, with chemicals eschewed in the vineyard, a third new oak employed at elevage, long ageing in barrel with minimal racking, and hand bottling with no fining/filtrating two years following vintage.
Clos de la Roche is the largest and perhaps most reputed Grand Cru of the four mapped within Morey-Saint-Denis.
The 2004 vintage had it's share of difficulties with a damp August and hail devastating some vineyards. Best appellations are in the Cote de Nuits. A vintage which delivered up wines that will be slow to mature and which will repay a good period of ageing.
Red brick colour in the glass. Floral and mineral bouquet with aromas of ripe strawberries and rose petals in the glass. Lots of wild raspberries, strawberries, cherries and dark plums in fine harmony with the soft tannins and a balanced acidity on the palette. A beautifully aged wine that could be enjoyed now.
