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

From a 0.44ha holding, high up on the slopes above Beaune. This is undeniable evidence of the quality of whites in Beaune when in the right hands. Ample stonefruits on the nose usher in a wine of great amiability, with a solid core of fruit on the palate again reflecting the generosity of the vintage. Then there is a transition...

TASTING NOTES

The higher sand content in this vineyard encourages a more supple, less structured wine and this extra finesse and fluidity allows it to make friends quickly. On the palate, there is exceptional energy here with complex aromatics lifting off one after the other. The intensity on the finish is initially a surprise after the breeziness of the attack but it...

Produced from a small 0.8 hectare vineyard next to Vosne Romanée, this is an incredibly elegant wine, with a mixture of sweet red berry and black cherry fruits on the nose. The palate is full of dark brooding fruit flavours with detailed spice notes on the finish and a hint of liquorice. This is a harmonious, medium-weight wine which reflects...
