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

This wine shows lovely purity of fruit on the nose with bright plum and red berry aromas and a hint of violets and briary spice. Darker cassis characters come through on the palate supported by textured tannins and refreshing acidity. Almost a normal crop was produced thankfully. Drink from 2019.Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

Exceptional purity and precision of the crisp green apple and riper cox apple fruit combines with a nervy acidity to provide juiciness and energy to this wine. It has a lovely mineral core and subtle hazelnut depths that add intrigue to the palate and persist onto the long, integrated and graceful finish. Drink from 2019.Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

Whilst the winemaking here is the same as the Vaudésir, the finished wine is very different. The Valmur is a powerful wine, with bundles of energy. The oak is arguably more prominent at this youthful stage suggesting it needs more time to age, but the brooding minerality beneath the veneer is unmistakable and hints at a wine with great potential....

TASTING NOTES

A welcome return after the 2015 crop was entirely lost to hail. As ever this is the most delicate of the Grands Crus, made entirely without oak.  The profile here is distinctly of oyster shell and a lovely hint of sea salt salinity. This is a wine of gorgeous purity and finesse; intensely chablisien with a chalky, zesty finish.  A delicate expression...

TASTING NOTES

Made from 50 year old vines, this is full flavoured yet very elegant with deep red cherry and dark plum fruit flavours. Integrated, velvety tannins and a hint of spice and leather on the finish add complexity and depth. This will be delicious in the next few years. Drink from 2016.

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.
