Remoissenet Père et Fils, Grand Cru Corton-Charlemagne

Remoissenet bottles one of Burgundy’s most impressive ranges of Grand Cru Chardonnay: Blanchot, Bougros, and Les Clos in Chablis; Bâtard-Montrachet and Le Montrachet in Puligny; and today’s Corton-Charlemagne from the legendary hill of Corton.

The Corton-Charlemagne vineyard takes its name from the famed Emperor Charlemagne who gifted this and other vineyards to the religious community of Saint-Andoche de Saulieu in the year 775. As legend has it, this vineyard was once an all-Pinot Noir vineyard, from which the hard-partying Emperor Charlemagne enjoyed many a bottle—staining his white beard in the process. In an attempt to clean up his beard, if not his act, Charlemagne’s wife had the entire vineyard re-planted to Chardonnay and the rest is history. Old wives’ tale or not, these concentrated, full-bodied, long-lived whites are among the grandest experiences in all of wine.

In 2020, Remoissenet’s meticulously selected fruit came entirely from southwest-facing vines beyond 40 years of age. The manually harvested crop was pressed whole cluster and fermented naturally in brand-new 342-liter French casks. Extended aging also occurred in these same vessels. Even in its youth, Corton-Charlemagne from Remoissenet is always a singularly delicious and hedonistic treat but Burgundy collectors know the real magic begins about 5-7 years after the vintage.

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 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, 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.
