Visiting Remoissenet Père et Fils in early November, our team were very impressed. It has undergone a startling renaissance in recent years offering consistency and value. Neal Martin agrees: “There are some gems to be found - not only on the top rung.”

Robert Parker calls Louis Jadot "probably the best run negociant firm in Burgundy", a view echoed by Jancis Robinsons who calls it "thoroughly reliable" with a reputation "based on the high quality of its domaine wines." When we visited in October the 2015s confirmed this.

Quick out of the blocks, Faiveley’s reds have particularly impressed Winehog’s Steen Öhman, who has awarded high scores, describing them as “outstanding and repeatedly praising their energy. According to Öhman the style is “a more fruity and refined expression of Burgundy.”

Expert Opinion & Vintage Report

We consolidate a wide range of critic scores, expert opinion and market insight into one place to help you make an informed decision. Click here to see all the major critic score. Critics have compared this vintage to 2005, one that Wine Advocate classed as "extraordinary". Below is just a taster of what the critics are saying:

 

On the reds: “Low yields and warm weather allowed for ample ripeness, small berries and an early harvest. Quality is looking extremely fine, with some people whispering comparisons with the outstanding 2005 vintage.” And on whites: “An early vintage with a very warm, dry summer… Lower acidity levels make the wines richer but less precise than the 2014s.”  – Jancis Robinson

 

 “Let’s say that it is at least possible that the 2015 vintage in the Côte d’Or will be a very great one. Start saving now.” – Andrew Jefford, Decanter

 

“Michel Lafarge reported that he has rarely seen such magnificent grapes, and his comments have been echoed by others… Prices, however seem destined to be high; perhaps the highest in real terms that they have ever been.” – Clive Coates MW

 

“I have never tasted anything like the very best 2015s and if they keep the ultimate freshness until after bottling these wines could be among some of the best Burgundies produced in my time.” – Steen Öhman, WineHog

 

“2005 might be the most apt comparison for 2015. But nowadays most of Burgundy’s winemakers are far more flexible in their winemaking and élevage.. I suspect that the 2015s will evolve more gracefully than the ’05s... The very warm, dry growing season of 2015 yielded Burgundy’s fleshiest, most opulent white wines since at least 2009. The 2015 whites are clean, pure and rich, favouring ripe orchard and soft citrus fruits over minerality, as is typical of very warm, sunny years.” – Stephen Tanzer, Vinous
