Domaine Rollin Père et Fils

Domaine Rollin Père et Fils

In immaculate cellars in Pernand-Vergelesses, just a few miles outside Beaune, the father-and-son Rollin team turn out consistently good wines for medium-term drinking, as well as being a wonderful source of long-lived Corton-Charlemagne. 

The estate was started by Raymond Rollin who, in the 1950s, started diversifying from selling his crop to the large Beaune houses by marketing wines in bottle. It is his grandson Rémi, born in 1958, and great grandson Simon who are in charge now. Simon was a stagière at Kumeu River, the excellent New Zealand Chardonnay producer. Their vineyards extend to 12 ha, all close by Pernand-Vergelesses. The Rollins have 0.5 ha of Corton-Charlemagne, making about eight barrels on average. The rest of the vines are in Pernand-Vergelesses and in Echevronne up the valley into the Hautes-Côtes, where they have part of their 2 ha of Aligoté vines. They underplay the oak influence on the wines to maintain the purity of flavour, and we at Tanners are big fans of that.
