BURGUNDY & CHABLIS

The Burgundy wine region 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 wine can provide the ultimate - the transcendental, mystifying, unexplainable pleasure that only truly great wine can bring. But at its worst, Burgundy wine can be an expensive mistake, bring disillusion and even provoke anger.

2012 Pouilly Fuissé En Vergisson

Bottle 75cl £27.10

BUY
TASTING NOTES

The Mâconnais was largely spared the devastating effects of hail but here too a small crop resulted from the cool and wet conditions at flowering. This cuvée remains one of the more mineral-laden and tightly-wound in the region and really comes into its own after a couple of years in bottle. Drink from 2015.

TASTING NOTES

Bottled since August, this is showing the character of a wine that is comfortable expressing itself, "bien dans sa peau" as they say in French. Ripe apple and cinnamon aromas followed by more spice on the palate from the elevage in barrels, you feel the warmth of sunshine ripened fruit in this wine, balanced by Alix's characteristic freshness. Drink from...

2016 Chablis Grand Cru Valmur

Domaine JP & B Droin

Case 6 x 75cl

Image of wine Chablis Grand Cru Valmur
BUY
TASTING NOTES

Whilst the winemaking here is the same as the Vaudésir, the finished wine is very different. The Valmur is a powerful wine, with bundles of energy. The oak is arguably more prominent at this youthful stage suggesting it needs more time to age, but the brooding minerality beneath the veneer is unmistakable and hints at a wine with great potential....

TASTING NOTES

A welcome return after the 2015 crop was entirely lost to hail. As ever this is the most delicate of the Grands Crus, made entirely without oak.  The profile here is distinctly of oyster shell and a lovely hint of sea salt salinity. This is a wine of gorgeous purity and finesse; intensely chablisien with a chalky, zesty finish.  A delicate expression...

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.

Burgundy Region

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.
