We had great fun last week hosting two dinners with Pierre-Antoine Rovani, president of Remoissenet Pere et Fils. Rovani might be a familiar name - he spent 10yrs working with Robert Parker as a reviewer for The Wine Advocate, before leaving to work for the new owners of Remoissenet.
Our dinners showcased both the mature vintages for which Remoissenet are renowned and some of their recent releases, most of which come from vineyards they either own or farm as opposed to the classic negociant model of old. Pierre has been kind enough to open up the cellars to Averys and our customers allowing us to order the wines we served at dinner, including their last stocks of the 1969 wines. All wines are available either by the case, in bond, or by the individual bottle.
