    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.
