PRODUCER

Remoissenet Pere & Fils

Remoissenet Pere et Fils was founded in Beaune in 1877 and was run as a negociant and producer for the last part of the 20th century by the venerable Roland Remoissenet. The 7.5-acre estate was sold after Remoissenet retired in 2005 to New York investors and a Canadian wine importer. Pierre-Antoine Rovani, once a writer for Wine Advocate, is employed by the New York investors, who installed Rovani as president of of the domaine. Maison Louis Jadot also has a minority financial interest in the estate. Bernard Repolt, the former president of Louis Jadot, is in charge of winemaking at Remoissenet. Vineyards have been added in recent years and the estate is now focused only on producing wines from grapes grown on estate vineyards, a departure from past years. Today the estate is known for Premier Cru red and white wines.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Chablis, Fourchaume

Fourchaume is a Premier Cru vineyard located just to the north of Chablis’ Grand Crus. The 84-acre hillside parcel is considered one of the best of the Chablis Premier Crus, and some people feel it should be elevated to Grand Cru. Within Fourchaume there are several important climats, or sub-parcels, including Vaupulent, Cote de Fontenay, L’Homme Mort and Vaulorent. The Fourchaume soil is primarily a composition of limestone, clay and fossilized oyster shells.

TYPE

White Wine, Chardonnay, Chablis Premier Cru

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
