Remoissenet has friends in high places – and, although we can’t say who, one of the region’s most respected and collected producers, personally sources their Chablis. Beyond some intelligent sourcing, there is no expense spared when it comes to the winemaking. The wines are 100% barrel-fermented and matured in large oak casks for 18 months (50% new). The results are extraordinary. The wines are texturally rich, layered and powerful, but cleverly never lose their sense of place.
In 2019, this opulent style has never suited the vintage better. The famed Les Clos Grand Cru is always a highlight when tasting the Remoissenet wines from barrel. It is their most powerful and flavourful Chablis – and, as with the rest of the wines in 2019, they have never tasted better.
With only two barrels made, this is fine Grand Cru Chablis at an enticing price and one of our top-value picks of the vintage.
“The nose of Les Clos is very pure with fine, subtle florals. Notes of comice pear, crystallised lemon rind and dried citrus fruit oscillate with the rounded, rich, creamy texture of the wine. The oak is layered over a very pure core of fruit, with a classic sunny Les Clos typicity. On the finish, the wine tightens up nicely and ends with real mineral focus and salinity. Superb.”
