Remi Poisot
Remi Poisot is our original golden artisan. He inherited some small plots of the best terroir in the Burgundy. And he tends to it carefully. Everything is between very good and great. And his RSV s is always an amazing value. But in 2022? In 2022 his RSV is utter perfection.I gave a perfect 10! This is a wine that will easily last 20-30 years. You will want this in your cellar for the rest of your life. A lot of it. And at this price, you will be challenged to get a better “A Tier Terroir” Grand Cru value in Burgundy. I’d say it’s impossible, but I never say never.

2022 at Poisot
This is Remi’s best vintage and his smile was from ear to ear in his full cellar. He said it was his first complete harvest since 1985! And what a bounty! The wines are supple, silky, sweet and very transparent but have the ridiculous fruit quality of 1999 or 2019 (Choose your fighter) that makes them outrageously profound, delicious and elite. I was blown away by every 2022 at Poisot and you will not believe these wines then they arrive in the Fall. We have to start with the big boy today, the PERFECT 2022 Romanée St. Vivant. This wine and the Brisset Echezeaux are like 1 and 1A for Grant Cru Red Burgundy at Fass Selections. I know so many of you are waiting for this insane wine and it happens to be BY FAR the cheapest RSV in the market for almost 9+ years running. Sick sick wine. 

We don’t sell much wine in this price range but when we do, the values are crazy. Today, we are selling the 2022 Remi Poisot Romanee St. Vivant Grand Cru for $449.99 a bottle NET. Before I get into the tasting notes you need to understand how remarkable a value this wine is. I went on wine searcher and checked out the prices of 20 RSVs.

– The least expensive 2021 RSV through 3 tier is $717 from JJ Confuron. Then it’s the 2021 l’Arlot t for $950-$1449

Another thing I noticed is because 2021 has low yields and has huge hype behind it that prices of Grand Cru wines are around 40-50% higher in 2021 than in 2020 if you can fid them.In 2022 prices will go up aain. Poisot is $449.99 today which is by far the cheapest 2021/2020/2022RSV. 

Other 2021 RSV:

  • Hudelot-Noelat – $1,029 – $2,000
  • Cathiard – $2,900 – $4,800

Remi’s is as good as it gets and is as good as the $2,000 Hudelot-Noellat and is only $449.99 NET.

In the context of RSV, this is a ridiculous world-beating steal.

I don’t have much but if you splurge on one red Burgundy Grand Cru this year this should be it as the value cannot be overstated. The 15 got 92-95 from BH and the 14 got a 94 as well. Those are elite score from Meadows. Anyway the wine is transcendent. The 2022 is like the 2019 crossed with the 2021. Both legends at Fass Selections. Also as of 2015 Remy ploughs the RSV vineyard by horse. He pulls out all the stops. 

The wine is extraordinary. On the nose you just get that Grand Cru density. It’s hard to describe unless you’ve had it but there is so much there there, it seems impossible because the wine is so elegant. A compact thrust of dense cherries, spice, lavender and a hint of moss. I always just smell this wine for 15 minutes – it’s almost like a small world in every sniff. This is what you pay hundreds of dollars a bottle for – lesser terroir can’t achieve this.

The sweetness of the fruit is just beyond anything. It is so elegant yet so concentrated and exquisite. The length of this wine is just beyond the comprehension of my small brain. It never ends. One sip is all one needs. The wine is persistent on the palate for 2-3 minutes each sip. You cannot believe it. It must be tasted to be believed. It has the finest grained fruit and tannins one can imagine. You can taste why this wine commands this premium price as it is just better than most any Pinot Noir I sell. It is refined like an 800 thread count sheet. It is so pure. The purest. It is so textured and so seamless. It is really a spectacular wine and you really get what you pay for here. It is so balanced and has zero hard edges no matter how hard you swish it. I don’t have much. Ideally this is better in 5-10 years

As you know, we believe that strict recitations of tasting notes is only part of the story of a wine. We’ve always tried to include metaphors to try to give our readers a better understanding of how wines impact us. These metaphors have included architecture, painting, music and poetry. 

We’re trying something new to help create visual metaphors using Midjourney, a generative artificial intelligence program that is by far the best image gneratour out there. I’ve messed around with a bunch and this is by far the best. We look forward to hearing your feedback.

I love drinking and selecting wines – but my passion for teaching people about wine is almost as big. I’m happy to announce a block of time each day where people can call me just to chat about wine in general. These blocks are NOT intended to sell wine (I do that all day). This is to talk to me about wine pairings or great producers or how long to age wines or styles of wine making or the latest wine controversy. My goal is to help people learn more about wine and enjoy it more. Call me at 917-912-4355 from 4-7EST Monday – Friday.

I want to know if you liked the wine, were not moved by the wine, hated the wine or the wine gave you a religious experience. I want to know it all. Feedback is key and I will answer all feedback e-mails as quickly as I can.
