Certified organic. 80% Grenache and 20% 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 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 7-8 months in concrete tanks with no fining and only a light filtration prior to bottling. Grown at 250 metres above sea level it is a wonderfully aromatic, supple and silky Côtes du Rhône, still medium-bodied and filled with plenty of raspberry and black cherry fruit as well as rose and thyme, a lick of confit sweetness on the mid-palate and a juicy tangy finish courtesy of its high country origins. All up terrific Côtes du Rhône for the money. Any other questions can be answered by opening the bottle... - Importer Note

Details

Domaine la Réméjeanne takes some tracking down. Yet it’s one of those places that is “worth a special journey”, as the Michelin Guide would put it. We made the pilgrimage to Sabran a couple of years ago to revisit this wonderful producer, one that we had worked with in the distant past. We won’t bore you with the tales of wrong turns and rural misadventures. Suffice to say, the north western hills of the Côtes du Rhône appellation is striking country – the Rhône valley in your rear-view mirror and the foothills of the Cevennes ahead. Scenery aside, time spent with main man Rémy Klein, a look at the vineyards and a tasting of the Réméjeanne wines told us that this was a producer we needed to start working with again. These are wines that proudly speak of their place – high up in the hills with soils comprised of sand and limestone. This highly distinctive terroir results in a range of fresh, highly refined Côtes du Rhônes brimming with fruit and character. They are far cooler and purer than many of the Côtes du Rhônes produced at lower altitudes and on alluvial soils and this stylistic difference suits us right down to the ground. - Importer Note
