Description & Technical Information
-
This is the very first release of La Rémissonne, a single vineyard bottling from a plot just beyond Clos des Goisses in Mareuil sur Ay. 100% Pinot Noir from our plot "La Rémissonne" in Mareuil-sur-Ay, the House’s centuries-old terroir. First press juice, exclusively from Premier Cru grapes from the heart of the Champagne vine-growing area. Vinified using traditional methods to avoid premature oxidation. Vinification without malolactic fermentation. All the wines are fermented in casks. “Extra-brut” dosage (4.5 g/litre) to maintain a balance between freshness and vinosity without masking the wine’s character and purity. La Rémissonne is one of a trio of single plot cuvées, of which 2009 is the third vintage after 2008. The selected plot is adjacent to Clos des Goisses. Only 2,590 bottles of this vintage were produced.

Weather: The 2009 harvest began with a particularly cold winter but mild spring temperatures helped avoid any frost damage. Some stormy spells boosted the vegetation in late spring and June and July were altogether variable with hot spells and rainy patches. The glorious August weather was perfect for the grapes growth, hot and dry days followed by cool nights led to rapid maturation. Harvest began on September 8th and ended on the 21st.

    Since the early 21st century, a quiet revolution has been occurring in Champagne, and the ever-burgeoning demand for artisanal, hand-crafted cuvées continues to flourish. What are the origins of single vineyard champagnes, why are they so popular, and are they a fad or the future?
