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 proclaimed in Wine Advocate, "This estate needs to be on every reader’s short list." The Emilie Blanc is nearly 100% Marsanne with a splash of Roussanne to round out the cuvee.

    Hermitage blanc is something special. From a single hillside vineyard above the Tain L’Hermitage, the appellation is typically well known for its ageable reds, but are rare due to the small size of the hillside. White Hermitage is even more rare. Yet, it stands as one of the worlds great white wines that age beautifully, and showcases rich complexity. At its price-point the Remizieres is an absolute steal. It shows rich melon and honeyed tones with tart apple, and a finish that goes on and on. This is a stone-cold serious wine that will only get better with time.
