Bourgogne Pinot Fin 2012 Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux

BOUR525
This wine should need no introduction as it is one of the finest examples of Bourgogne AOC and comes from four parcels of Pinot Fin, the revered "lost clone" of Burgundy. Consistently one of the finest Bourgogne rouge cuvées that we taste in Burgundy every year and in fact the 2012 is one of the best yet, with texture, concentration and depth way beyond its humble Bourgogne status

Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux

The name Arnoux has been a feature in Vosne Romanée since the mid-19th century. Since the early 1990s, Robert Arnoux's son-in-law Pascal Lachaux has been running the estate and in 2009, Pascal and Florence have at long last made the subtle change in the naming of the Domaine. Pascal has indeed proved himself to be a hugely talented winemaker and his drive and ambition have ensured that the Domaine is now regarded amongst the top tier in Vosne-Romanée. The Domaine comprises some 12 hectares, with the highlights being the small Grand Cru holdings in Romanée St Vivant, Echézeaux, Latricières Chambertin and Clos de Vougeot and some excellent Premiers Crus, particularly Suchots, Reignots and Chaumes in Vosne Romanée and Corvées Pagets and Procès in neighbouring Nuits St Georges.

Tasting Notes

"A very fresh and lightly spiced nose of red and dark currant leads to supple and admirably pure flavors that display just a hint of earth on the balanced, persistent and saline-inflected finish." Allen Meadows, Burghound 86-88 - Tasted: Jan 15, 2014. Drink: 2015+
