Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux

About 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 jokes that after more than 15 years, he thinks his apprenticeship has been more than completed!

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.

The style at Arnoux is for full, rich and deeply-coloured wines that are built to last but are also accessible in their youth. Pascal is not afraid to use new oak and this can mean that the wines need to be given time to fully integrate and knit together in bottle before displaying their full potential.


Pascal Lachaux has taken the Domaine to new heights of quality and acclaim and is now handing over the reins to his eldest son Charles, part of the new generation of young winemakers who are assuming control of some of the finest addresses of the Côte D’Or.

Over the last couple of vintages, Charles and Pascal have introduced more freshness and vitality to the wines which perfectly complements and lifts the classic Vosne-Romanée richness and weight. There is genuine excitement in Burgundy as these stars shine ever brighter and we strongly suggest that you get on board while you can.

Big advances have certainly been made at this Domaine, particularly since 2005 when a new cuverie was completed, giving the tools to work with greater precision, something which is particularly seen in the more naturally austere sites such as the Nuits St Georges premier crus.

This, combined with some of the most rigorous vineyard work anywhere in the Côte, plus the subtle changes in vinification style that Charles has brought in with Pascal's full support, makes for a Domaine which is continuing to advance. Today it provides some of Burgundy's most important reference points.
