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

Made from 50 year old vines, this is full flavoured yet very elegant with deep red cherry and dark plum fruit flavours. Integrated, velvety tannins and a hint of spice and leather on the finish add complexity and depth. This will be delicious in the next few years. Drink from 2016.

TASTING NOTES

Always a strong wine in the line-up, the 2011 edition is once again lively, energetic and punchy and eager to show its personality. This is more playful than many wines with the emphasis on pleasure rather than patience. It is an all-rounder that is impossible to dislike. Drink from 2014.

TASTING NOTES

A more subtle, reserved and overtly mineral nose, this is a wine of great depth with finely detailed spicy fragrances, rich tannins and rounded feel. This is confident wine that hasn¿t had to move out of second gear to already be impressive.

TASTING NOTES

If the ability to make a good Bourgogne Rouge is the mark of a quality winemaker, this is a case in point. Very juicy with purity of raspberry and red cherry fruit and good weight. With freshness and lift and a crunchiness to the finish, this is very moreish Bourgogne Rouge.

TASTING NOTES

The most stylish Corvées we can remember tasting, this was on great form, lifted and fresh with excellent energy. On the palate, the minerality takes over but never becoming austere as the wine shows its elegance and definition. The drive through to the finish demonstrates a complete wine of excellent potential, built to last but with great finesse too.

TASTING NOTES

A supple, attractive and very enjoyable white Burgundy. This is a relatively simple style but it still has a mineral backbone and plenty of acidity to balance the approachable sweet fruit. Not the most complicated 2009 in the range but wonderfully enjoyable right now. Delicious.
