BURGUNDY & CHABLIS WINE REGION

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.

TASTING NOTES

Bright, smoky red and black fruit provides a subtle floral lift. The palate is very fine, with a lovely velvety grip and fresh mouth-watering acidity. Dark wild fruits and a hint of liquorice spice on the palate show lovely density and richness before the long, supple finish. Drink from 2022.Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

A refreshing and energetic wine with lovely pure fruit, there is an added tension and direction here. A bright bouquet of white stone fruits leads to a refreshing palate with lively green apple flavours underscored by a lean mineral character which leads to a long finish.

Notes of apple, pear and flintstones on the nose, on the palate, there is fine quality of material on display and plenty of zip and vigour. The acidity is brisk and cleansing but without aggression and on the finish, the extra degree of length shows that a careful hand has ensured no deviation from its path. Focused, direct and with...

Lovely wild, dark briar fruit with an elusive lifted floral perfume shows exceptional purity. Juicy black cherries on the palate develop an attractive spiced complexity with fine, integrated tannins and a firm, cool minerality. This is very pretty. Drink from 2020.Armit Wines

There is an enticing spiciness on the nose here, perhaps more sweet spice than savoury with some red earthy notes and a pleasing hint of cedar. The palate is built around a really good concentration of blackcurrant fruit with a delicate, restrained structure. Drink from 2015.

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.
