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

Ruby with magenta nuances. Earthy and quite ripe nose features a variety of wild dark berry fruits. Strikingly rich and full-bodied flavours that is supple yet serious with excellent volume.

Food Matches

Enjoy with peking duck!
