75cl * 13.0% ABV * Burgundy, France
Gilles Remoriquet is forever looking for ways to improve his wines – his most recent research trip was to the Jura to see a specialist about manure... He has become known for being the leader of the pack in Nuits-Saint-Georges (and even has a share in La Tache, the neighbouring plot to Domaine de la Romanée-Conti), but prices have yet to catch up.
This is far from ‘basic’ Bourgogne rouge, but a blend from assorted plots across Nuits-Saints-Georges and the Côte de Beaune. Sweet red fruit and spice with hints of dark cherry pit. Always a best seller. Drink to 2028.
