Remoissenet Père et Fils, Volnay Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, France 1966 (750mL)
Out of all the rare Remoissenet antiques we’ve offered over the years, this1966 Volnay takes “cellar release,” “mature Burgundy,” and “flawless provenance” to the highest, most literal level. Every bottle of library Remoissenet has been personally handled by GM/wine legend Pierre Rovani and cellarmaster Bernard Répolt. Each ‘shiner’ bottle was cleaned, recorked, labeled, quality checked, and the winners were topped off with more of the same 1966 Volnay. That’s a top-notch quality assurance program! The end goal is to deliver a breathtakingly historic and perfectly drinkable mature Burgundy. the spiritual drinking experience it brings will stick with you for a lifetime. Enjoy an ancient bottling is one of the finest wine experiences on earth—but you simply can’t replicate your first encounter with one.
This is a velvety smooth Volnay with zero edges and angles. It’s all about the suppleness of dried blackberry, plum, and cherry, and the slow unraveling of secondary/tertiary notes: underbrush, dried herbs, black tea, soft baking spices, crushed rocks, damp leaves, mushroom stock, truffle, and vintage leather. Savor it slowly around 60 degrees in Burgundy stems and pour small amounts, 2-3 ounces, so as not to rush the onset of oxygen. It’ll keep evolving over the evening, and I strongly suggest you pace yourself because that final glass will be the absolute highlight.
