Delicate sweet fruits, sleek and charming, with fresh raspberry notes and a very fine texture. Juicy, lively and pretty unputdownable.
This 11-hectare Domaine, spread over Echevronne, Pernand-Vergelesses, Savigny-Lès-Beaune and Aloxe-Corton, has been run by Remi Rollin since 1989 and more recently he has been joined by his son Simon Rollin in 2003, and Simon’s wife Caroline in 2009. The Domaine has been passed down now by four generations, Raymond Rollin acquired a number of vine parcels, most notably the parcel of Pernand-Vergelesses Premier Cru Ile des Vergelesses. Raymond’s son, Maurice, played an important role in winning over a large client base while undertaking the management of other vine parcels. In 1976, Remi joined his father Raymond in planting up to almost 10 hectares over the next few years. Remi’s wife, Agnes, helped with the rapid development in bottle sales and since the mid-1990’s all the production has been bottled and labeled under their own label.
The high altitude of Remi’s vineyards imparts a minerality and fresh acidity to his wines while his tentative use of new oak smooths off the firm edge that many lesser Pernands have without preventing the fruit from expressing itself. There is no new oak used for the villages and generic level wines whilst a maximum of one quarter new oak is employed for the red and white premiers crus. These are some of Burgundy's best value wines. Domain Rollin has been certified by Terravitis since 2015 following sustainable practices.
