Tasting Notes

  • BURG

    Burghound, January 2019,
    Score: 88-90

    An exuberantly expressive nose jumps from the glass to reveal a lovely array of earth, red currant, spice and a whiff of lavender. There is once again an appealing sense of energy to the lighter weight flavors that deliver solid punch and persistence on the balanced finish. This is a relatively elegant Nuits villages.

Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux

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.”

Nuits Saint Georges

The second largest town after Beaune, Nuits St. Georges is known for ample wines that have textured tannins and rich fruit. Unlike other famous Côte de Nuits villages, it has no Grand Crus but does have a handful of exceptional premier cru vineyards such as Clos de l'Arlot, Les Pruliers and AuxMurgers. Its wines can be occasionally rustic, and this sets them apart from many of the more northern appellations as well as from the neighbouring Côte de Beaune whose wines (apart from Pommard) tend to be less structured and more fruit forward. This is no doubt due to a slightly increased presence of clay especially on the Primeaux-Prissey area of the appellation. Notable producers include Domaine de l'Arlot, Jean Grivot and Meo-Camuzet.
