BURGUNDY & CHABLIS

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.

TASTING NOTES

A very elegant wine with a real sense of direction and purpose, it reveals a subtle bouquet of stone fruits and delicate citrus characters while the palate is refreshing and pure with soft white peach and green apple fruits. A little restrained at first, this wine has plenty of depth and the potential for longer ageing.

A refreshing and energetic wine with lovely pure fruit, there is an added tension and direction here. A bright bouquet of white stone fruits leads to a refreshing palate with lively green apple flavours underscored by a lean mineral character which leads to a long finish.

Notes of apple, pear and flintstones on the nose, on the palate, there is fine quality of material on display and plenty of zip and vigour.

There is an enticing spiciness on the nose here, perhaps more sweet spice than savoury with some red earthy notes and a pleasing hint of cedar. The palate is built around a really good concentration of blackcurrant fruit with a delicate, restrained structure. Drink from 2015.
