Get to know: Dom. Remoriquet, Nuits-Saint-Georges "Les Allots" 2017
A really excellent example of Nuit-Saint George, this is true Burgundian Pinot Noir. Aromas and flavours of sour cherry, raspberry, cranberry and vanilla with a little pepper. The silky textured palate is medium-bodied and refined with pure concentration and great depth of flavour. The finish is long and satisfying with some food friendly tannins.
Try this with a rare rib-eye steak.
Gilles Remoriquet is not a winemaker who rests on his laurels, forever looking for ways to improve his wines. Most recently he has been to the Jura to see a specialist about selecting the right blend of manure and has bought a second sorting table which eliminates under-ripe berries by flotation. The attention to detail flows right the way through from his vineyards to the winery.
Les Allots covers around 8 hectares in Nuits-Saint-Georges and Remoriquet is alongside Leroy as one of the top producers here.
