Cecile Tremblay Bourgogne Cote d’Or 2019 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
The 2019 Bourgogne Côte d'Or is already showing superbly, bursting with aromas of cherries, wild berries, subtle soil tones and savory nuance. Medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, it's satiny-textured and beautifully lively, framed by powdery tannins and bright acids. As I wrote last year, this corresponds with the bottling formerly known as "La Croix Blanche," and it derives from well-situated parcels in the communes of Vosne-Romanée and Chambolle-Musigny.--William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
Cecile’s great-grandfather, Edouard Jayer, was a cooper in Nuits-Saint-Georges and uncle of the renowned Henri Jayer. the Tremblay family has quietly amassed a collection of vineyards in the Cote de Nuits. Prior to 2003 they had been leasing them out as sharecrops to different producers. Domaine Cecile Tremblay has almost ten hectares spread across 11 different appellations between Nuits-St-Georges and Gevrey-Chambertin, including the Grand Crus Chapelle-Chambertin and Echezeaux-du-Dessous. In 2003, the family’s sharecropping agreement expired and Cecile regained control of 3 hectares of vines. She now farms a large part of the Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru “les Feusselottes;” her grandfather purchased this vineyard land with his good friend Dr. Georges Mugneret. Cecile will acquire even more vineyards when a series of leases expire with Domaine Hudelot-Noellat, and has already acquired vines in Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru “Beaumonts” and Clos Vougeot is on the horizon.
