Domaine Cecile Tremblay

cecile-tremblay.jpgThe irrepressable Cecile Tremblay has recently moved in to her purpose-built new cellars in Morey St.-Denis, and she couldn't be happier about it.  She feels it not only gives her the room to tend her wines during their upbringing, but that it also brings her closer to them in an emotional sense.  And that is a very enlightening insight to better comprehending her wines.

Whilst she doesn't aspire to the term 'natural winemaker', that's in essence what she is.  She cultivates her vines biodynamically, and makes them with minimal input - a little sulphur at crushing and a touch more during their elevage and/or bottling.  That's it.  The wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered, of course, and all fruit is 100% destemmed.

Cecile has inhereted her vines from her great uncle, the legendary Henri Jayer, and is closely related to both the Noellats and the Confurons in Vosne-Romanee (Nuits St.-Georges).  Yet her parents were not vignerons, and as such nearly half of her six hectares of vines are still leased out.  As these leases expire, her inventory and domaine will grow.tremblay-cellars.jpg

The Tremblay wines are highly individual wines, terrifically interesting and incredibly rare.  Most cuvees have only a couple of barrels, and global demand is such that the wines are rarely seen outside of Burgundian restaurants.
