Henri et Gilles Remoriquet
Domaine Remoriquet Nuits Saint George
Domaine Henri and Gilles Remoriquet is a 10 hectare domaine located in the Côte de Nuits of Burgundy. Henri's son, Gilles, runs the family domaine, and since taking over, has made many changes in both the vineyards and the cellar. Vineyards are managed sustainably, with and emphasis on soil and vine health. In the cellar, Gilles has replaced the stainless steel tanks with concrete vats, which gives him the slower fermentation he wants for the wines, resulting in wines with more finesse, elegance and complexity. All wines undergo a few days cold maceration before fermentation in concrete with native yeasts. There is never more than 30% new oak on the wines. The Nuits-St-Georges is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes that come from three different lieux-dits in the village: Aux Saint-Juliens, La Charmotte, and Les Saint-Jacques.
The wine is bright and supple, and though the fruit is pretty, there is some muscle behind it, with good acid structure and light, fine tannins. Silky and attractive, this will more than satisfy the Burgundy connoisseur.
