Georges Remy Les Hauts Clos 2016
Initially tasted only a year or two after bottling it was tight yet showed a lovely level of integration and elegance. A few more years down the line and the wine has developed enormously, broadening its shoulders and gaining immense complexity and depth on the mid palate. This is the wine that will lift this very winemaker into the high echelons of Champagne making history. Taught, hugely complex, layered and, most importantly, delicious.
We visited Georges before he had even released a Champagne! Having seen a bottle of Bouzy Rouge, (red wine from the village of Bouzy), we found our way to his house and were introduced to a fabulous selection of cuvées. He works mainly with Pinot Noir in Bouzy, Tauxieres and creates a stunning rosé!
