Domaine Arnoux Lachaux, Echezeaux Grand Cru 2013

MOP 2,060.00

“The vineyard is situated in the lieu dit Rouges du bas, a parcel of just under one hectare situated in the heart of the Echézeaux, in the middle of the slope. The vineyards are planted on a north-south axis; average age of the vines is about 60 years old. Fermentation for this wine is 70% whole cluster; the fruit is put in tank without any crushing. A cold soak follows, then the alcoholic fermentation takes place with very little intervention,with pump-overs and punch-downs as needed. The wines are then gravity-fed into French oak barrels (100% new) for malolactic fermentation and aging. Bottled at the beginning of March.”

Description

“The name Arnoux has been a feature in Vosne Romanée since the mid-19th century, with the name Robert Arnoux being a yardstick against which the best of Vosne-Romanée was measured. Since the early 1990s, Robert Arnoux's son-in-law Pascal Lachaux has been totally running the estate and in 2009, Pascal and his wife Florence at long last made the subtle change in the re-naming of the Domaine. Pascal has long proved himself to be a hugely talented winemaker and his drive and ambition have ensured that the Domaine is still regarded amongst the top tier in Vosne-Romanée.”
