“Pure, refined, and elegant” are just a few words that describe Cecile Tremblay’s remarkable wines. Based in Vosne Romanee, Tremblay runs this interesting biodynamic 3+ ha domaine in the Côte de Nuits. Beginning with the 2003 vintage she has garnered much acclaim from Burgundy insiders and the wine press alike. She will add several more appellations over the next 5 years or so, including several more grands crus; when all of the vineyards are retrieved they will total 6 ha. The approach here is completely biodynamique and she will be certified as such soon. She believes in very dense plantings of 12,000 vines per hectare, manual harvesting, 85 to 90% destemming, 15 to 18 months of élevage in approximately one-third new oak barrels and bottling without fining or filtering. Domaine Cecile Tremblay offerings include some of the most highly prized appellations in Burgundy: Chapelle Chambertin, Echezeaux Du-Dessus, Nuits Saint George cuvée Albuca, Vosne Romanée Vieilles Vignes, Morey Saint Denis Tres Girard, Vosne Romanée les Rouges du Dessus 1er cru, Chambolle Musigny Les Feusselottes 1er cru and Vosne Romanée Les Beaumonts 1er cru.
