One of Burgundy's charms is it's so difficult to get right, it's an unforgiving climate and Pinot Noir is a fragile heart. It's a bit like Stephen Fry, on his day he's elegant, nuanced and scintillatingly expressive. Yet, you get the impression if things didn't quite go the way it was supposed to, you could quite easily discover him hiding in the cloakroom of your sister's wedding. Thankfully, the gents at Remoissenet Père et Fils know how to take care of the gentle. The wine orates eloquent notes of crunchy red berries, toasted cedar and mushroom. A beautiful wine; it's clear if you're in need of some care turn to Remoissenet.


Remoissenet Père et Fils was founded in Burgundy in 1877, and was established in a 14thcentury building in Beaune. In recent years, the company was run by larger-than-life Roland Remoissenet for around 30 years, before it was sold and taken over by a consortium including the Milstein brothers from the USA, Halpern Enterprises of Toronto and Louis Jadot, with Bernard Répolt, veteran of managing several other Beaune houses, in charge. The business is on the lookout for vineyards to acquire.


In the years before the UK joined the EEC there were some intriguing cuvées which were understood to be the surplus production of grand wines under simpler noms de plume. I remember for example some Bourgogne Rouge, Cuvée du Cardinal Richelieu from I think 1972, which may or may not have had an affinity with Richebourg.


The company owns 2.5 hectares of Beaune premier crus, including Bressandes, Marconnets and Grèves, but their stock is solidified by wines obtained from their négoçiant business, and the Montrachet vines of Baron Thénard, whom they represent.


In addition to the annual harvest, a few extra bottles are sold each year that were residing in the cellars when the estate was sold. These ancient bottles are considered rarities and great collectors’ items, and at the time of purchase there were around 1 million of them.
