2015 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru, Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux

The estate’s vines in the sizeable Clos de Vougeot are towards the top of the slope, touching Grands Echézeaux. This is complex and intense on the nose, with chalky tannins and an exotic yet precise finish. Sadly none will be produced in 2016, due to the frost.

2015 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.
