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.

Bottle 75cl £23.22

TASTING NOTES

Very good concentration and impressive length for this level. Succulent fruit and a real sense of salty, tangy minerality. This is in the sweet spot today.

Domaine Fontaine Gagnard

In Stock

Case 6 x 75cl
Available In Bond

TASTING NOTES

This gorgeous Chassagne clearly standout for its intensity and inner balance. The Clos de Murées is a family Monopole, where vines were planted in 1970 in a calcaire-rich soil that imparts a clear mineral vein to the Chardonnay produced in this small slice of heaven. An epiphany of ripe peach and pear notes rise from the glass, all wrapped in...

Case 6 x 75cl

TASTING NOTES

I returned many times to the charming Vosne-Romanée Aux Réas from AF Gros. I kept a glass on the side to see how it opened up over the evening – and it did so beautifully. The wine unfurled with red cherries, raspberries, undergrowth and forest floor, and a hint of the spice and smoke to come. Restrained right now but...

2012 Beaune 1er Cru Les Grèves

Domaine de Montille

In Stock

Case 6 x 75cl £286.08

TASTING NOTES

Black fruits on the nose here, with a robust, sturdy confident, almost strutting style. On the palate there is extra finesse in the tannins and an additional layer of density. Drink from 2016.

2013 Bourgogne Blanc, Maison

Maison de Montille

In Stock

Bottle 75cl £24.08

Case of 12 £288.94

TASTING NOTES

The 2013 vintage was very difficult vintage to manage, with a heavily reduced crop after the hail. This superb White Burgundy has a lovely perfume, and very Puligny-Montrachet in style. The really heightened fruit and exciting aromatics dance across the palate. This is a marvellous wine from a master winemaker and will be excellent to drink now after a short...

2012 Bourgogne Blanc, Maison

Maison de Montille

In Stock

Case 12 x 75cl £288.94

TASTING NOTES

The Bourgogne Blanc, which had completed its malo by springtime, is already in bottle and offers good fruit weight and mid-palate density but plenty of freshness too. The nose is pure and floral and the wine bounds along energetically, with a crisp, well-defined finish suggesting versatility, equally at home on its own as with simple foods. Drink from 2014.

TASTING NOTES

Produced from 50 year old vines, this wine has a lighter and more aromatic profile. A floral bouquet leads to  a palate with bright red fruit characters and a delicate mineral quality. This wine will grow in stature as it matures in bottle. Drink from 2020.Armit Wines

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 Burgundy wine 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 Burgundy wine estates to tiny family domaines, you need to know where to turn and who can be relied upon.

At Armit Wines, we work with Burgundy wine region 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 region 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.
