Notes from the importer, Andrew Guard...
Cecile Tremblay is a relation of the Noellats and the Confurons in Vosne-Romanée and is the grand-niece of the late Henri Jayer so her roots are profoundly entrenched in top quality Burgundy. Her parents, however, were not vignerons so the small family domaine was rented out. The winemaking as you can imagine is meticulous; the grapes picked into small boxes containing only 4 to 5 kilos each to ensure their integrity and on arrival at the winery they are cooled and after a pre fermentation maceration the alcoholic fermentation begins in old large wooden casks using only indigenous yeasts. Temperatures are closely monitored and fermentation lasts on average 28 to 35 days. After pressing the wines are matured in barrel for 15 to 18 months and are neither fined nor filtered before bottling which is done according to the lunar calendar. The result of Cecile's extremely rigorous classification (and de-classification) of all the wines prior to bottling is that the production of all the wines is tiny, some just a few hundred bottles...these are extremely rare wines and so available quantities are unfortunately miniscule. Most importantly though, qualitatively this domain is right at the top of Burgundy.
