2008 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru, Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux

Pascal has a large and well placed parcel in this the most famous of vineyards.A muscular and concentrated effort, with peppery tannin and mouth-coating texture, this is one of the more serious 2008s we tasted.With toasty new oak and a core of spicy bramble fruit, it will need bottle-age to show its full potential.

2008 Clos de Vougeot 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.
