Burghound, January 2017,
A more deeply pitched and distinctly spicier nose combines notes of violet, plum, black cherry and a hint of sandalwood. There is fine intensity to the velvety yet impressively precise medium weight flavors that are at once seductive yet punchy while delivering excellent depth and length on the balanced finish. This too is recommended for a top quality and age-worthy villages. Outstanding

The 2015 Vosne-Romanée Villages is just as dramatically perfumed as its Nuits-Saint-Georges counterpart, bursting from the glass with notes of creamy cherry, rose petal, clove and orange blossom. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied and texturally voluminous, discreetly framed by satiny, fine-grained tannins and juicy acids.
Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux is familiar to Burgundy lovers the world over as one of the most sought-after domaines of Vosne-Romanée, and indeed, the whole of Burgundy. The history of Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux is one that perfectly encapsulates the evolution of the region. Founded in 1858, the property spent most of the last century as Domaine Robert Arnoux, named for Pascal Lachaux’s father-in-law who sadly passed in 1995. Pascal then took over the reins and made substantial improvements, both in the vineyard and in cellar, sealing the transformation of the Domaine with the addition of his own name. Today, the Domaine is run by Pascal’s son Charles Lachaux, who, in the words of Burghounds Allen Meadows “is on his way to becoming a legitimate super-star as his innovative and obsessive vineyard work is second to none.” With Lalou Bize-Leroy of the famed Domaine Leroy as his mentor, it is no surprise that the Charles's painstaking approach is yielding such acclaim. As the Wine Advocate’s William Kelley says: “Every vintage seems to bring (Charles) Lachaux one step closer to realizing his objective, to paraphrase the words of his leading inspiration, Lalou Bize-Leroy, he might legitimately be content, albeit never satisfied, with the results of all his efforts. This is an immensely promising domaine, with one of the brightest futures ahead of any in Burgundy, and readers should start paying attention.”
The vineyards of the modest village of Vosne Romanée are arguably the most sought after in the Côte d'Or. It is host to excellent Village and Premier Cru wines, but it is its most famous Grand Crusthat truly stand out: Romanée-Conti, La Tâche, Richebourg, Grands Echézeaux, Echézeaux, Romanée St. Vivant and La Romanée as well as Cros Parentoux, a Premier Cru vineyard which attracts Grand Cru attention (and prices). Vosne-Romanée can be remarkably robust and powerful, yet be charming and fleshy giving it one of the most diverse styles of the region.
