Chantal Remy, Chambertin, Grand Cru, 2017

Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Chantal Remy, Chambertin, Grand Cru, 2017

Deep to mid deep red colour, a sumptuous dark-fruited Chambertin. Creamy, broad but totally seductive. Darker fruit than Remy’s other wines. Notes of loganberry and creme de mûre. Voluptuous, clear very seductive. The estate’s smallest parcel. Even in a generous year like 2017, only one and a half barrels are produced.

Neal Martin, Vinous
The 2017 Chambertin Grand Cru feels a little volatile on the nose of black and blue fruit and cherry liqueur, quite high-toned but missing a little grace. The palate is framed by saturated tannins, delivering plush black cherry and blueberry fruit but lower acidity than its peers, and as such, it lacks some complexity and terroir expression on the finish. Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2017 tasting.

Chantal Remy

Chantal Remy started looking after the Domaine in 1988, shortly before a large proportion of its vineyards were sold. A third of the initial holding was left, vineyards spread over some excellent sites in the Chambolle-Musigny and Morey St Denis communes, at least until Chantal Remy’s mother died – when the domaine reduced again from, 4.5 hectares to 1.5 hectares as Napoleonic inheritance laws kicked in. The winemaking is resolutely traditional; no herbicides or insecticides are used in the vineyards, a third new wood is employed for élévage, during a long cask ageing there is just one racking and bottling takes place by hand two summers after the vintage, without fining or filtration. Classic, finely-tuned Burgundies that demonstrate an arresting purity and finesse. They are delicate and designed for pleasure! From 2009 all the Domaine Louis Remy wines will be labelled as Chantal Remy. Chantal’s son Florian started making the wine here in 2013 and seems destined to take it to ever greater heights.
