Robert Arnoux’s reputation skyrocketed during the reign of Pascal Lachaud. Ever since he took over the Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux winery in 2015, Charles Lachaux has been quietly going about his business, each new vintage bringing him closer to his vision of what the estate is capable of. He also dislikes new oak and uses 10% in country wines and a maximum of 30% in Grand Crus. Charles Lachaud is a wine lover, and he is wine savvy, which I suspect is why he makes some delicious wines.
If I had to point out what makes this domain special is Charles Lachaud and his unwavering focus on the vineyard. The domain was founded in 1858 with a bottling property represented by Robert Arnoux, Charles’ grandfather, born in 1931 and following his father’s death in 1957.
When showing the 2018 harvest for the first time in London, he admitted that he was very impressed with the new wine, 14.5 hectares of vineyards in 6 villages and 15 different wines in 14 producing areas-this crop clearly belongs to the winemaker, and its success Much depends on harvesting when it is harvesting. With vineyard innovations that allow phenolic substances to mature early and reduce alcohol levels, and now that almost all wines are made in 100% whole bunches, Charles has earned himself a reputation in Burgundy-even if he did it out of cuteness. Confidentiality. Charles fell in love with 2018 wines, their new royal blue and gold uniforms looked impressive, and believed that 2018 wines told the story of innovation in the field.
In a word, all the online wine auctions here are of the highest level, and the notes speak for themselves. I liked the purity of the fruit and the piquancy of the red wines, the subtlety of the tannins, and the amazing structure that the wines develop.
Of course, this report explores and focuses on wine, but it also wants to know whether the 2018 vintage heralds the arrival of Burgundy. Below are my notes on the 2013 harvest and the link to the 2013 harvest report. Romanee Conti Winery, the domain names and merchant lists I visited, and the wines I recommend, and finally the list of wines I tasted and picked. Tasting. No matter what their wines are, I would like to introduce you to Domaine Comte Armand, Jean Grivot, Georges Roumier, Comte Georges de Vogue, Genot-Boulanger, Louis Jadot and Bouchard Pere & Fils, just to name a few to provide insights. 2018. They are 1969 vintages. I am very impressed with the style of the wine. In my opinion, it is more like Romane Conti than any other wine I tasted at the time.
Over time, I bought, put in the cellar, and drank many wines from Domaine Robert Arnoux. Georges Roumier founded this domain and began producing wine in 1924. This domain has stakes in some of the best vineyards and the last few vintages have consistently been high with great wines produced in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and now in 2013.
This is a domain whose guilt has risen to a whole new level in recent years. We started tasting here from a barrel in the early 1980s, and in the years that followed, we continually discovered that the wines of this region are some of the best of every vintage. Although the quality of these wines is always good, the quality of these wines has increased dramatically in recent years. Most of the wines in the village are 70% whole clusters, and besides, almost all are 100%.
In the vineyard, he adopted the technique of Lalou Bize Leroy, allowing the vines to grow a little and not mechanically placing them in the hedge. Lacho believes that in this way more precision can be achieved, and it is important for him that each vine is treated differently. Lacho takes an empirical rather than a strictly scientific approach, observing closely and seeing what works best.
He said that if his wines are taken to the next level, it is due to the health of the vineyard and the organization of the winery when he started operations in 2012. He told me that Rich hasn’t expanded his vineyard for 25 years, and he didn’t expect it to be like this in the future-under Pauls’ leadership, he has worked stably and unexpectedly for 60 years, using the traditional, bottom-up method to produce high-quality wine from a vineyard. By the 1800s, local yeasts and additives did not appear in their wines. The winemaker Alex Moreau of Domaine Bernard Moreau continues to show consistently high performance in his wines.
We have compiled a series of seven compelling wines from the most sought-after French producers. And there are always alternatives, not least wines owned by Lafon’s del Maconnais that are included in this report, or producers like Domaine Michel Bouzereau, whose portfolio has delighted me from top to bottom this year.
After all, they have some of the best vineyards in Vosne-Roman and equally good vineyards in Nuits-Saint-Georges. This reflects the fact that Pascal Lacho has been producing wines for about 20 years and that he and his wife Florence Arnoux (daughter of Robert Arnoux) have been running the Domain since 1995.
Charles is the eldest of three children of Pascal Lacho and Florence Arnoux. The name was changed to Arnoux-Lachaux in 2008 to reflect the current ownership, and the winemaking is now headed by his son Charles Lachaux, an active supporter of the Burgundian dean of Laloux-Biz Leroy and her wines. Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux is a red wine producer located in Vosne-Roman, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits.
It is one of the best first-class vineyards in Burgundy, and Les Suchots in Arnoux-Lachaux is known for its superclass garden quality. At Bowler, we have always been impressed by Arnoux Lacho’s wine tasting, and since Charles joined his father, wine has reached new heights. Facts have proved that Pascal is a very talented winemaker. His determination and ambition have made Domaine one of the best winemakers in Vosne-Roman. They are concentrated in Vosne-Romanes, where the area is located, but extend south to Nuits-Saint-Georges and north to Vougeot, Chambal-Musigny, and Gevrey-Chambertin.
Domaine Arnoux-Lachauxs’ policy was to maintain reasonable yields by using very tall trellises to produce dense and highly concentrated fruit to obtain the most revealing and transparent translation of each terroir in the glass. Tall arbors and low yields have ensured early grapes, which are warm and sunny late harvests like 2017 usually mean the domain is harvesting earlier than most of its neighbors. Wines are very durable and only reveal their potential many years after bottling. I am looking for differences between wines; I want the names to speak. Lacho believes that the high prices that Burgundy producers charge for their wines may pose a risk of complacency.
