Tasting Notes

A beautiful exmple of the velvet-textured, pure, and perfumed Vosne style. This vineyard is known for its spicy and floral nuances as well as fuller than average body. This aged gem is just reaching the peak of its drinking window.

Previously Domaine Robert Arnoux, the estate was founded in 1858. Today, it is run by Charles Lachaux, representing the family's sixth generation. Despite, or perhaps because of, his youth, Charles is crystal-clear in his aspirations and objectives. The vineyard is virtually everything here, complemented in the cellar by restrained oak use and some whole cluster fermentation. Charles makes no secret of being a disciple of Lalou Bize-Leroy, leaving the vines' shoots to grow longer than usual, in tune with their natural vigour. �We don�t want to be traditional; we don�t want to be modern.� The estate is 14.5 hectares, all planted to Pinot Noir, spread over six villages and 15 terroirs. These comprise four grands crus, five premiers crus, five villages and a regional level wine, the excellent �Pinot Fin�.
