Gilles Remoriquet is forever looking for ways to improve the wines from his 12.5 hectare sustainably farmed domaine, whether that means a dedicated trip the Jura to see a specialist about selecting the right blend of manure, or investing in a second sorting table which eliminates under-ripe berries by flotation, he is not one to rest on his laurels. Cuvaisons in concrete vats are long, giving a light colour yet concentrated yet elegant fruit flavours. Wines are fermented with natural yeasts and never see more than 30% new oak, allowing the fruit to shine through.
Medium bodied with delightful pinot fruit, there is some density and structure here but it doesn’t overpower the silky fruit or mask the fine, silky tannins.
