We've bolstered our premium Wines of Distinction portfolio with the addition of Burgundy producer Remoissenet Père et Fils.
The addition of 11 wines from Beaune producer Remoissenet Père et Fils to the Matthew Clark portfolio follows an increase in demand for Burgundy classics.
Siobhan Irons, Wine Buyer, said “It was wonderful to meet the managing director of Remoissenet Père et Fils, Bérnard Repolt, last summer. He’s a very entertaining guy full of fascinating stories. We’re incredibly excited to bring on board a selection of fantastic wines which have greatly improved since Bérnard joined the winery. I can’t wait to show the wines off at our trade tasting at London’s Tobacco Dock in March.”
Winery Remoissenet Père et Fils was founded in 1877 and was a family run estate until it was sold in 2005. Since then the winery has been led by Managing Director Bérnard Repolt, previously General Manager of Louis Jadot. Head Winemaker, Claudie Jobard, daughter of Laurence Jobard, (winemaker at Maison Joseph Drouhin for 30 years) has been at the estate since 2005 and has been instrumental in turning the winery around. Repolt and Jobard have worked closely together to reduce yields and ensure that the fruit is treated with the utmost respect and that a rigorous triage is carried out. This has allowed the vineyard holdings to be increased, especially for Beaune premier cru which has been expanded to 13 hectares.
Bernard Repolt said “I know Matthew Clark very well from my days at Louis Jadot and have always been very impressed by the organisation’s efficiency. I was very happy to meet Siobhan Irons this summer and to learn that Matthew Clark was looking for more exclusive, high end, top quality wines. Matthew Clark is connected to the UK’s top hotels and restaurants, which is precisely where we want our wines to be.”
