Importer’s Notes

REMOISSENET PÉRE ET FILS
Ladoix 1er Cru ‘Les Gréchons’

The name Remoissenet for serious collectors stands for refined, classic Burgundy wines. A leading light in Beaune for generations, the estate today—with new management and fresh talent in the cellar—is now more than ever the definitive source for the best Burgundy has to offer. Yet what is the most striking about the wines from this leading négociant estate is their unforgettable texture: with Remoissenet, it’s all about the finish. These are wines that linger on the palate and in your memory, long after each bottle is emptied.
