Domaine la Remejeanne Un Air du Remejeanne 2019
Special 6 Pack Buy Fine Cotes du Rhone
“No one… ever paid much attention to the wines of the out-of-the-way village of Sabran – until a careful, thoughtful winemaker like Rémy Klein came along.” Andrew Jefford, The New France
“Proprietor Rémy Klein is one of the most consistently top-flight winemakers among the Côtes du Rhone producers.” Robert Parker, The erobertparker.com
Rémy Klein (makes wines that proudly speak of their place, Sabran) high up in the hills with soils comprised of sand and limestone. He picks his fruit a bit earlier than most resulting in a range of fresh, highly refined Côtes du Rhône wines brimming with fruit and character. There is a purity and freshness (cooler temperature/more natural acid resulting altitude) in his wines quite distinct from many of the Côtes du Rhones produced at lower altitudes and on alluvial soils.
Certified organic. 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah. All of the fruit for Olivier Klein’s cracking-value, organic Un Air Côtes du Rhône is drawn from the Estate’s highland, sandy limestone vineyards ( at 250 metres above sea level) set around the hamlet of Sabran. Everything is picked by hand, sorted, and then mostly destemmed. The ferment is natural and the wine then spends seven to eight months in concrete tanks with no fining and only a light filtration prior to bottling. 2019 is an outstanding vintage for this wine, delivering a perfumed, bright and pure Grenache-led Côtes du Rhône. You can expect aromas and flavours of raspberry, star anise and thyme, a racy, jubey palate and a crisp, refreshing close, courtesy of the wine’s high-country origins. Simply a terrific Côtes du Rhône for the money. Under screwcap.
