Rémi Leroy Saignee Les Crots 2014
Amazing colour. Bright red with an orange tinge. The nose is powerfully vinous. Burgundian. The first sip glides by beautifully and then this complex, rich and engaging beast beneath unleashes all it has. Structured, rich, demanding of food. This is incredible.
We visited Remi a few years ago in Meurville and totally fell for his juicy, rich, characterful wines. They exude generosity and it was clear that his skill both in the vineyards and the winery were going to bring something special. Years later and it is clear that he has done exactly that. He works with 8.5 hectares of mainly Pinot Noir and the wines rock.
