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

The Bourgogne Blanc, which had completed its malo by springtime, is already in bottle and offers good fruit weight and mid-palate density but plenty of freshness too. The nose is pure and floral and the wine bounds along energetically, with a crisp, well-defined finish suggesting versatility, equally at home on its own as with simple foods. Drink from 2014.

TASTING NOTES

Sourced 50% from Chambolle Musigny, 25% from Vosne Romanée and 25% from Nuits St Georges. This is a delightful Bourgogne, fresh, juicy and crisp with an excellent balance between fruit, acidity and wood. The depth of flavour and added concentration mark this out at this level. This was bottled in September and is ready to drink from release.

TASTING NOTES

A wonderfully harmonious, balanced and satisfying Pouilly-Fuissé, just delightful today. A touch of chalky minerality and bright acidity frame the citrus fruits and highlight the green and yellow fruit characters. This is absolutely glorious right now.

TASTING NOTES

The Deux Montille vineyards are in south of the village of Auxey Duresses. The vines are facing east and are located just below the 1er Cru appellation “delimitation”. This gives the grapes maximum sun exposure and in 2009, the vines benefited from good weather conditions (maybe the best of the decade?), this gives the wines all its buttery roundness and...
