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

Dark spicy fruit with a hint of raspberry on the nose leads to a crunchy palate of blackcurrants underpinned by a delightful cherry pip minerality encased in an elegant, fine boned structure.

We tasted wines from two barrels of which the first was hardly oaked and the second was more oaked.

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.
