[Remi at the domaine]

This offer is a little bitter sweet for us as this address was a big point of interest for going in and the wines certainly didn’t disappoint. From a young vigneron working vineyards in the most famous appellation in the Jura, we had heard whispers that this was one of the rising stars of the region. Remi has an impressive resumé having worked for Jean-Louis Trapet, Jacques Selosse, and Domaine Tempier in the past – quite the checklist to say the least and three producers who turn organic viticulture into world class wines. Every single wine we tasted at the domaine was delicious. The only problem for us – Marquis d’Angerville gave Remi an offer he couldn’t refuse – the great Burgundy domaine recently purchased property in the Jura and asked him to manage the vineyards as well as collaborate with the cellar-master at d’Angerville in the cave. We can see why they chose him as his wines are polished and pure, his Trousseau here reminding us much of Michel Gahier’s wines from the same appellation (one of our favorite producers in the region especially for reds). Trousseau is the most serious and noble red grape in the Jura. Powerful yet with a weightless mountain wine quality. This is a particularly sophisticated example from old vines with refined tannins, compellingly aromatics, and tons of energy on the palate. We were all smitten and our hearts sunk into our stomach when we found out this would be the last vintage of this wine. A one-off wine for us, but we were too excited to not go out on this one even if this will not be something we can continue down the line. It also helps that the domaine has sharp pricing, as this easily competes with examples of this varietal/appellation well into the $30 range. From one of the brightest young minds who is destined to go onto big things at his new job, here is what got him there. And like his future position, a wine of hometown roots that will win-over those with Pinot palates.
