Notes & Scores

Armit Tasting Note

In contrast to the Meursault, this is a far more mineral wine with greater acidity and a long, fresh vital feel. On the palate, there is already the hint of considerable complexity and potential and this looks certain to be the most successful vintage of this relatively new addition to the cellar seen to date. Drink from 2012. 0

Producer

Domaine Lafarge dates back to the Revolution and beyond. Over a great many years, this has been the source of some of the most consistently fine wines in the Côte de Beaune and they are never flippant wines for casual, premature acquaintance, a good 10 years for anything at village level or above will be no problem at all. The Lafarges are still committed vignerons who are in the vines every day and who totally believe that the quality of the fruit is the secret to great wine. The vines are treated with great care allowing the nuances of the terroir to speak out. The next twenty years at the Domaine will doubtless pass like the last twenty years, producing understated, classic wines of benchmark quality.

Region

Burgundy has always fascinated and frustrated in equal measure. For every eulogising, life-changing proclamation from someone realising wine nirvana, there is some poor soul somewhere bashing their head in perplexity. At its best, Burgundy can provide the ultimate- the transcendental, mystifying, unexplainable pleasure that only truly great wine can bring. But at its worst, it can be an expensive mistake, bring disillusion and even provoke anger.

For sure, Burgundy is not the region of choice for the unadventurous or risk averse! How then to navigate the minefield? Our advice has always been, and still is, to get to know the growers. It sounds like simple advice but with so many producers, from powerful négociant houses to the new breed of micro négociants, from large, historic estates to tiny family domaines, you need to know where to turn and who can be relied upon.

At Armit Wines we work with growers who we count amongst our friends who are by definition, people who won't let you down. These are personal contacts gleaned from years of visiting, talking, tasting and building relationships. Some friendships grow whilst others fade of course but the great ones endure: legendary, ground-breaking growers such as Anne-Claude Leflaive and Guillaume d'Angerville; superstars such as Pascal Lachaux, Christophe Roumier, Jean-Marc Roulot and the Raveneau brothers; under-appreciated talents such as Patrick Bize and Richard Fontaine.
