Remoissenet Père et Fils, Volnay

Remoissenet’s antique cellar collection takes “mature Burgundy” and “flawless provenance” to the highest, most literal level. This perfectly preserved 1953 Grand Cru still rests in their cold cellar beneath the cobblestone streets of Beaune.


This 1966 Volnay direct from the domaine is a revelation in Burgundy collecting!

In the glass, slow-churning waves of red and black cherry, wild strawberry, hibiscus, damp violet, and Damson plum are coaxed out with ample air, all of which are propped up on a soft bed of crushed stone, iron, moss, baking spice, and aged tea leaf. The palate is medium-bodied and wonderfully graceful with a delicate profundity that’s present in every sip. This still has energy and lift after multiple decades of aging in the cellar.

France

Bourgogne

Beaujolais

Enjoying the greatest wines of Beaujolais starts, as it usually does, with the lay of the land. In Beaujolais, 10 localities have been given their own AOC (Appellation of Controlled Origin) designation. They are: Saint Amour; Juliénas; Chénas; Moulin-à Vent; Fleurie; Chiroubles; Morgon; Régnié; Côte de Brouilly; and Brouilly.

Southwestern France

Bordeaux

Bordeaux surrounds two rivers, the Dordogne and Garonne, which intersect north of the city of Bordeaux to form the Gironde Estuary, which empties into the Atlantic Ocean. The region is at the 45th parallel (California’s Napa Valley is at the38th), with a mild, Atlantic-influenced climate enabling the maturation of late-ripening varieties.

Central France

Loire Valley

The Loire is France’s longest river (634 miles), originating in the southerly Cévennes Mountains, flowing north towards Paris, then curving westward and emptying into the Atlantic Ocean near Nantes. The Loire and its tributaries cover a huge swath of central France, with most of the wine appellations on an east-west stretch at47 degrees north (the same latitude as Burgundy).

Northeastern France

Alsace

Alsace, in Northeastern France, is one of the most geologically diverse wine regions in the world, with vineyards running from the foothills of theVosges Mountains down to the Rhine River Valley below.
