Louis Remy Latriciers Chambertin 2004
Region: Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru, Burgundy, France
Grape Varieties: Pinot Noir
Chantal Remy started looking after the Domaine in 1988, shortly before it sold a large proportion of its vineyards to Domaine Leroy in 1989. A third of the initial holding is left, vineyards spread over some excellent sites in the Chambolle-Musigny and Morey St Denis communes. The winemaking is resolutely traditional; no herbicides or insecticides are used in the vineyards, a third new wood is employed for élévage, during a long cask ageing there is just one racking and bottling takes place by hand two summers after the vintage, without fining or filtration. Classic, finely-tuned Burgundies that demonstrate an arresting purity and finesse.
