Fragrant, light tannins, fresh and red fruits
Arnoux-Lachaux dates back to more than 150 years but have only been bottling their own since the 1950's. Robert Arnoux passed away in 1995 leaving it to his son-in-law, Pascal Lachaux who had been working alongside his father-in-law since 1987. The Domaine was renamed Arnoux-Lachaux in 2007. Grandson Charles Lachaux took the reins in 2012. This is very much a family estate. Today, Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux has 14 hectares of old vine Pinot Noir in the Côte de Nuits. They practice both organic and biodynamic viticulture. While the 2007 vintage was tough for most of Burgundy, Nuits-Saint-Georges faired pretty well producing bright, juicy and clean Pinot Noir.
