Burgundy is all about terroirs and vineyard holdings, and many talented wine makers are limited by the vineyards they own and financial opportunities to rent or buy great vineyards.
It is therefore lovely to see when new generations take over a plot of one of the great vineyards – in this case the perhaps best located plot in Romanée Saint-Viviant – just below Romanée-Conti.
I am of course talking the plot of the Poisot family .. where Remi Poisot a former navy Captain now has gone ashore and has since 2010 taken over his fathers holdings – and is now running his own estate located in Aloxe-Corton.
