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.
A glorious and welcoming wine with a bright perfumed nose of black cherries enhanced by 80% whole bunch fermentation. The palate is silken and deliciously voluptuous while the signature freshness is enhanced by a subtle grip and delicate spice. Long, concentrated and generous.
Lovely with parmesan pheasants breast with crispy ham.
Produced from three separate parcels from vines that are between 50 - 60 years old. 50% fermented in 2 year fill barrels with the remaining 50% in stainless steel.
