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

Ripe and concentrated red and black fruit shows poise and restraint. The palate is open and perfumed with bright red fruit, roses and violets with savoury undercurrents of tea leaf and brown spices. The fruit is encased by velvety tannins and lifted by a lovely freshness and a long, concentrated finish. Drink from 2021.Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

A genuine step up from the Village wine, the Le Berceau shows greater definition all around. This displayed a combination of flowers and orchard fruit on the nose and palate. It is a rich mouthful that is balanced with refreshing acidity. Drink from release to 2020.Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

The Deux Montille vineyards are in south of the village of Auxey Duresses. The vines are facing east and are located just below the 1er Cru appellation “delimitation”. This gives the grapes maximum sun exposure and in 2009, the vines benefited from good weather conditions (maybe the best of the decade?), this gives the wines all its buttery roundness and...

TASTING NOTES

The nose is taut and restrained hinting at pure red cherries and savoury cherry pips. The palate is fresh and lively with a firm mineral core and fine chalky tannins. The fruit is yet to fully unfurl but the finish is long, savoury and slatey, promising that a wine of finesse and complexity will emerge. Drink from 2021.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 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.
