Remi Rollin, Pernand-Vergelesses, Sous le Bois de Noel et Belles Filles, 2015

Third and fourth-generation of the Rollin family, Rémi and his son Simon run their domaine which comprises 12 Ha over 14 appellations.

Their vineyards practices are based around a respect for soils and to ensure balance of the environment into the future. Vineyard work is very labour intensive and ploughing is used between vines.

In the cellar they aim to be as “neutral” as possible in order to reflect the true terroir of their sites. Grapes are hand sorted then gravity-fed to vats to keep them intact and undamaged. During the maceration period they avoid too much intervention so as not to upset the natural process too much - all to preserve all the red fruit aromas typical of this grape variety and the characteristics of the terroir. Wines are then aged for ten to fifteen months in oak barrels. Bottling takes place without fining or filtration.

The Rollin domaine is certified by Terra Vitis, which means adherence to respect of the environment in the vineyards, reduction of inputs at all stages, management of effluents in cellar, good working conditions of personnel, recycling.

A nose of bramble and black fruits. Fine smooth tannins frame a palette of raspberry, blackberry and a hint of Pernand minerality. Elegant, refined. Aged in neutral oak.
