The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Remi Poisot comes from a famous wine family. But while the rest of his family “went big”, Remi went small, focusing on quality over quantity. The wines were always very good…in 2022 they reached elite levels. These are Grands Crus in all but name. We know from Berlancourt, Brisset, Ledy, and others, what talent and effort can accomplish. Poisot’s 2022’s are another entry in the massive overachiever Hall of Fame.

The 2022 Vintage
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 duo of Pernand 1er Crus which I have not offered since 17 for the white and 19 for the red are always amazing values. I didn’t get any because he made so little due to low yields, frost and other farmer malaise. But in 2022???? In 2022, Poisot took the final leap. All of his hard, back breaking work resulted in wines that are absolutely at a Grands Crus level of quality. 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 find better 1r Cru values in Burgundy. I’d say it’s impossible, but I never say never. It is the finest young Remi Pernad 1er Crus I have ever had. The depth is unending and the finesse is the best I have ever experienced in this cuvee. The juxtaposition between bracing acids, sweet fruit and elite structure and grip is astonishing.

In 2015 the Pernand-Vergelesees 1er Cru Blanc “En Carradeaux” arrived (Was just Pernand Blanc then, 2017 was first as 1er cru) and it was a stunner. But in 2022 with more acidity and freshness (Back to Pernand Blanc but this is so 1er cru in quality) I think it has taken another step forward and shows Remi’s gentle touch at under $45.  

We’ve got the 2022 Remi Poisot Pernand Vergelsses Blanc for $42.99 a bottle on a 4-pack. This has terrific fruit and ripeness, but also has amazing citrus-like poignant acidity and typical Poisot refinement. This bats way way above this level as all the Poisot fans know reading this. 

The nose is bright and refined with lovely refined aromas of ripe pear and apple fruits intermingled with defined mineral and spice. It’s like a baby Corton Charlemagne. Shimmering mineral nose. So sleek and on fleek. I’ll go with my auto correct. Really packed nose that is only showing 10% of what it is, but you can tell this is a big boy. Hints of pear and apple. Earthy tree bark and hay. It is very concentrated, powerful and elegant. 

Palate is just a buzz saw. It’s massive with tremendous dry extractand finishes very dry. There is stunning citrus acidity intermingled with intense minerality. The finish is succulent and vivacious which pumps so much fruit and mineral. Balanced, textured, hit of opulence and such stunning purity and freshness. So clean. Like a laser with its focus. Really intense and almost sweet minerality. Juicy, so juicy and such an explosion on the finish. Long, windy finish. This is top class and at least as great as the 14. Terrific complexity. So so well made. There is loads of elegance and refinement which is a classic Poisot trait that doesn’t matter what appellation it is from. The wine comes from the opposite side of the hill of Corton and it’s trademark is dazzling purity and acidity. The acid is very strong in this site Remi told me and he is right. The length is astonishing. This punches way way above its weight. Limited and will possibly be allocated. Below is the Burghound note for the 2017 with an 88-91 Score. He has not reviewed it since!

“A slightly fruity and softly exotic nose offers up notes of white orchard fruit, grapefruit and mandarin orange. The succulent, round and nicely textured medium weight flavors exude a fine bead of minerality on the clean, dry and reasonably complex finale.”  – 88-91 Burghound (2017) Last Time Reviewed

Next up is the stunning and alas very limited 2022 Remi Poisot Pernand Vergelesses 1er Cru “En Carradeaux” for as little as $55.99 a 3-pack. Yields were pretty good in 2022 but quality is super high. The wine is as good if not better than the legendary 2015 or 2017, which I had a bottle of other night and you can find my note here. But the 22 runs in a similar vein with more cut and clarity and of course more fruit. This is an insane wine that is almost Grand Cru quality. I gave this a 9.6 out of barrel and is by far the highest score I have ecer given to this wine. Usually it is 9.3 or 9.4.

Terrific high toned nose. Confectionary and mineral with huge dark licorice aromas and intense Xmas spice. Real intense mineral streak along with all that fruit. As is airs the nose is very pure with clearly defined mid to late season cherry fruit. Really focused and pointed. Needs to open more but it’s so precise. Deep minerality. Wafting. Such cleanliness and purity. This is a knockout.

Terrific. Deep and layered. Palate is bonkers. Deep, rich and ripe with ample sweet fruit and velvet tannins. The freshness combined with all that fruit is beyond epic. Awesome complexity and depth. So deep, cuts a swath on the palate. So long, sappy and complex. A great 1er Cru from Pernand. The thrust, fruit quality and depth set this apart from most Pernands I’ve had. Palate is juicy and ripe with good lift but seems a bit closed due to its youth but the finish has great length and acid with tiny berry fruit intensity. Gorgeous balance, purity and harmony. Wow that’s almost Grand Cru in depth, flavor and intensity. Wow wow wow. So so sappy. Fruit is gorgeous. Harmony and fruit definition. rule the day in this wine. It is so clear. 9.6 easy wirth great freshness and acidity.

I think this will need to open up over an a few hours once it arrives. Really fine and sauave tannins and very compact. Opening up. Really a large scaled wine like Carradeux can be but with dense fruit. Reminds me of Les Naugues in Mercurey which is a favorite of mine. For the points crowd Allen Meadows of Burghound gave the 17 89-92. I’d tend to go on the higher side as I tasted it even before Alan Meadows and it was showing great. This a 96 in my book if I gave scores! Wait, I just did. This is very limited and very allocated. Below is the BH review for the 2017.

“Reduction presently flattens the underlying fruit though there is both good freshness and detail to the delicious and velvet-textured medium weight flavors that exhibit a lovely minerality on the relatively complex and robust finale. This isn’t especially refined but it is persistent and well-balanced plus it’s built to reward moderate cellaring.”89-92 pts, Burghound (2017)
