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

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

Pure and bright on the nose with spring blossom and delicate citrus, the palate shows more weight with lemon peel and preserved lemon and complex notes of almond.  Lovely balance between fruit weight, freshness and a fine vein of acidity.  Drink from 2019.Armit Wines

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 nose is elegant and bright with vibrant redcurrant fruit characters and a hint of smoke and cedar. The palate is energetic and refreshing with dark brooding, forest fruits in the background and exotic notes of spices, herbs and leather. The 2010 is an excellent wine and shows how much progress Grégoire has been making in the vineyards. Drink from...

TASTING NOTES

We tasted wines from two barrels of which the first was hardly oaked and the second was more oaked. The first barrel showed beautiful elegance and purity of red cherry fruit, while the second offered more tannins and structure with darker, more exotic notes and spicier flavours. Together these flavours will meld into a brilliant, elegantly fruity wine with real...

TASTING NOTES

A powerful, tightly wound wine that benefits from extended ageing. Again, a blend of two sites, totalling just 0.62 hectares of 30 year old vines, combined to elevate beyond the sum of its parts. Les Casse-Têtes is from the heart of the village. It means ‘heads of stone’ evocative of the rocky soils the vines have to contend with, bringing...

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.

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.
