2008 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru, Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux

Gevrey is considered one of the more consistent appellations in 2008. Explosive on the nose with fennel, blackberry and woodsmoke, the palate is rich and concentrated. Spicy, with a thick texture and round, grippy tannins, this has a minerality and masculinity not found in wines from further south.

2008 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru, Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux
Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux

There are numerous examples of Burgundy domaines where the handover between generations has proven something of an upheaval. Fortunately Arnoux-Lachaux bucks the trend, with father Pascal and son Charles working closely together. They approach vineyard management using organic growing methods, and just as fastidiously in the winery. With Pascal’s influence, they represent the most rapid change in style of any Burgundy domaine, and the wines are now quite pure and elegant, with depth of flavour.
