Tasting Notes:

This wine is immediately appealing, opening with a bouquet of lively, sweet cassis and strawberry fruits, which gradually reveal darker plum characters intermingled with violets and wild flowers. There is a wonderfully racy energy on the palate and a seductive, almost aromatic quality to the delicate rose petal fruit that swirls over the cool, dark fruit and fine tannins.





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.

This wine has long been one of the very finest examples of Bourgogne AOC. It comes from four parcels of Pinot Fin, the revered Pinot cultivar, including one parcel planted in 1959 at Premeaux, south of the Nuits-Saint-Georges township. The latter vineyard perennially suffers from millerandage (resulting in tiny berries and bunches) and thus generates very low yields of rich, concentrated juice. There are also parcels in Chambolle, Vosne and Nuits proper.

Even at this level, the wine is fermented with 40% whole bunches and 50% of the cuvée is raised in 2 year old barrels, the remainder in tank. Old vines, low yields and great terroirs-this possesses the kind of perfume, texture and intensity of fruit rarely seen at this level.
