Vosne Romanee 1er Cru Les Suchots 2011, Domaine Arnoux

VOSN190
Famous for the rich and exuberant style of his wines, Pascal Lachaux works with very low yields and carries out a short maceration followed by a long fermentation. This is classic, non-intervention wine making which delivers immensely rich wines. His wines give instant appeal - big, rich and fat with relatively low tannins, which will provide appealing, early development. This is the largest nd noblest 1er Cru, situated next to Richebourg an Romanee St Vivant.

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.
