"In short, 2019—as Dom Denise might have predicted—is a superb vintage, and these are wines that all Burgundy lovers are going to want to secure for their cellars."
I'm excited to kick off the offer of the brilliant 2019 Burgundy with Domaine Remi Jeanniard!
There's no lack of famous winemakers in Burgundy, Domaine Remi Jeanniard is definitely one of them. Wine Journey has been representing RJ since 2016 and the wines were very well received by the Audience in both SG & MY.
Domaine Remi Jeanniard is located in Morey-Saint-Denis, deep inside the village with it's obscure location and the tiny signboard makes locating the winery a challenge. Monsieur Jeanniard started his own domaine after his father retired in 2003 and the vineyard was split between Remi and his brother. His inaugural vintage is 2004 with 7 hectares of vines. Domaine Remi Jeanniard owns properties in the heart of Côte de Nuits, with plantings in Morey St. Denis, Gevrey Chambertin, and Chambolle Musigny.
We were welcomed by the modest, a bit shy even, Monsieur Remi Jeanniard. With a brief tour to the winemaking facilities (really, it only took us a while to visit the whole place, yes, it is tiny). We had our tasting at the cellar with Monsieur Jeanniard leads us through the whole range with more detailed information of the winemaking / vineyard location
The vines are much older than average, with all of his Vielles Vignes bottlings being at least 50 years old, and the Morey St Denis over 60. This gives a natural concentration to the wines and more sophisticated raw materials. Most of the work here is in the vineyard, no chemical fertilizers, harvest by hand. Vinification pretty traditional: natural yeast, just 12 months in oak with relatively small percentages of new oak being used. Bottled with very little SO2 and without filtering and fining.
What struck us the most was the understated style of the wines. The wines are not powerhouses, instead they're attuned to a Zen-like quiet, slowly drawing on seasoned Burgundy palettes. The aromatic profile is filled with red fruits and flowers, with the higher cuvees showing deeper, complex aromas of blue fruits, peppery spiciness and savouriness. The wines have one thing in common, the acidity. Highly refreshing, it brings out the sensation of salinity and juiciness. Without a doubt this is pretty classic Morey St Denis, showing just a touch of edge but with excellent refinement in it.
Other than the introduction thus far and the technical notes to follow, what's even more amazing about this Domaine is the price!
High quality Burg + reasonable price = TOP QPR!
The wines are sold out at the domaine year in year out, and getting them on the secondary market is a challenge for the low production levels and rising popularity! Monsieur Jeanniard has had several opportunities to increase the price but nay, he said this is the price he wanted to sell. What a true wine lover! Fill your cellars is all we can suggest.

“In Burgundy, the best wines,” wrote the 18th-century Cistercian monk, Dom Denise, “are produced in years when the harvest occurs in mid-September,” and as I tasted the 2019 vintage up and down the Côte d’Or this fall, I often found myself reflecting that....
This is a thrilling year for Pinot Noir, delivering wines bursting with head-turning perfume and fresh, succulent fruit. Supple and enveloping, they are simultaneously serious and immensely charming, prompting Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier—who crafted some of 2019’s most compelling wines—to remark that he had never before encountered “a vintage that tasted so good, so young.”...
In short, 2019—as Dom Denise might have predicted—is a superb vintage, and these are wines that all Burgundy lovers are going to want to secure for their cellars.
Vinifying a small cuvée of Chambolle-Musigny myself, I saw first-hand how perfumed and seductive the young 2019s were, even after just a few days of fermentation, and these wines have never really gone through an awkward or truculent phase. In style, they evoke a hypothetical blend of the succulence, charm and expressiveness of 2017 with the substance and concentration of 2015. Looking further back in time, I’m tempted to invoke comparisons with 1964: a ripe, rather powerful vintage nonetheless beautifully differentiated by site and endowed with considerable aging potential.
Quote from a Morey producer:
Gevrey Chambertin has the power and Chambolle Musigny has the seductiveness and elegance.
Morey Saint Denis has both! Isn't it the best wine of the Cote?
