LOUIS REMY LATRICIERES CHAMBERTIN 2001
Offered APR 10th, 2017
Domaine Louis Remy has been managed by Chantal Remy since 1988. The 3.5 hectare domaine can trace its antecedents back all the way to 1821. Chantal has continued the tradition of making gentle, not overtly powerful wines which nonetheless repay keeping, as well as holding back a proportion of the harvest so that the domaine can offer older vintages for sale.
We sampled this last night, and all found it to be quite complex and drinking wonderfully right now, with the delicate and lacy red-fruited characteristics that many people look for in a mature Burgundy wine.
We have an opportunity to source this directly from the winery’s library at a great price. Please see below, and let me know if you could be interested in some. We’ll be importing in June.

92+ points View From the Cellar: “Not surprisingly, the 2001 Latricières-Chambertin from Domaine Remy offers up just a bit more signature of soil and a bit more mid-palate amplitude than the lovely 2002 version. The bouquet is a complex and maturing mélange of red and black cherries, coffee, mustard seed, gamebirds, sous bois and deft framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and blossoming beautifully at age ten, with a good core, modest tannins and fine focus and grip on the long and poised finish. Good juice. (Drink between 2011-2040)”
