Remy Derriere La Grange 2007

Remy Derriere La Grange 2007
Today we are delighted to offer a delicious premier cru that is drinking beautifully now.

Domaine Remy is a Justerini & Brooks favourite, and classic, finely-tuned Burgundies are its wares. For a long time under the radar, this tiny estate is now adored in exalted company and is carving its reputation as a prolific overachiever.

Chambolle Musigny, Derriere La Grange 2007 - from 40 year old vines - is framed around suave, limber tannins and a fine weave of acidity. Its melange of flattering red and black fruit is cut with clove, toast and underbrush, red cherry liqueur and wild forest fruit, through to a long, lip-smacking finish. It is a svelte, flattering wine very typical of the Remy style, and as it broaches a second phase of maturity, it brings with it more transparent Chambolle-charm and unbridled drinking pleasure.

It’s all the more impressive given that 2007 was not an easy vintage. In fact, clement weather conditions did not really arrive until late in August, lasting through until mid-September. Feeling this was their moment, and wary of further mildew pressure on the crop, many vignerons, even at the top addresses, harvested before uniform phenolic ripeness had been reached, and as the oft-generalised narrative goes, the resultant wines were born with disjointed structures, simple flavour profiles and a limited capacity to age.

Not so for Remy. Habitually one of the later pickers, Chantal and team were brave enough to wait for full ripeness, and this proved to be a boon in 2007. Nerve was duly rewarded and their ‘07s came up trumps.

What’s more, in a time of unprecedented demand, tiny crops and troublesome exchange rates, Remy continues to offer an outstanding quality to price ratio and faithfulness to terroir, in an authentic, drinkable style that will gratify even the most seasoned Burgundy collector.
