Region: Burgundy, France
Appellation: Hautes Cotes du Beaune
This 11-hectare Domaine, spread over Echevronne, Pernand-Vergelesses, Savigny-Lès-Beaune and Aloxe-Corton, has been run by Remi Rollin since 1989 and more recently he has been joined by his son Simon. The high altitude of Remi’s vineyards imparts a minerality and fresh acidity to his wines while his tentative use of new oak smooths off the firm edge that many lesser Pernands have without preventing the fruit from expressing itself. There is no new oak used for the villages and generic level wines whilst a maximum of one quarter new oak is employed for the red and white premiers crus. These are some of Burgundy's best value wines.
A Creamy and nutty Hautes Cotes du Beaune with some bottle age at this price is something not to miss.
