A genuine step up from the Village wine, the Le Berceau shows greater definition all around. This displayed a combination of flowers and orchard fruit on the nose and palate. It is a rich mouthful that is balanced with refreshing acidity. Drink from release to 2020.Armit Winesmore
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.

The Burgundy region 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 there are so many types of Burgundy wine. 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. These are by definition, people that 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 Burgundy wine 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.
