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.more

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...more

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...more

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...more

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.
