K&L Notes

The Desmeures family of Domaine des Remizières are fourth-generation winemakers who originally sold grapes to the local cooperative. After completing their winery in 1974, the family began production at their new property. The estate is now managed by Phillipe Desmeures, his daughter Emilie and son Christophe. They have expanded to 30 hectares with vineyards in Crozes-Hermitage, Saint-Joseph and Hermitage. Emilie now oversees the winemaking, with her brother Christophe tending to the vineyards. We were excited to add them to our lineup of Direct Imports last year, especially once Jeb Dunnuck of Wine Advocate proclaimed, “This estate needs to be on every reader’s short list.” We visited them on our recent trip to do some 2015 and 2016 barrel sampling, and there is going to be a lot to like. Meanwhile, all of the Remizières wines are available in limited quantities, so get these on your “short list” or you may end up on the waiting list.

    Truly a remarkable deal in Crozes-Hermitage! This wine is not only priced irresistibly, but drinks remarkably well even at this young age. Elegance and richness play well together here, presenting a wine that is full of open, soft, black fruit, but retains some cut and minerality that keeps the wine from being flabby or over-ripe. Domaine des Remizieres continues to impress at every level, and will no doubt reward some cellar time, if you can manage to hold on to a few bottles.

    I was stoked to add this producer to our roster last year after our visit. The Christophe takes Syrah up a notch with some élevage in oak foudre and demi-muid (larger barrels). More select parcels and richer fruit lead to a sensational palate of blue and black fruit with harmonious baking spices. It is a delicious star from the 2014 vintage.
