2015 Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru

$2,100.00

This famous Domaine has undergone some significant changes over the last few years. Firstly the name has changed from Domaine Robert Arnoux to Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux. This reflects the fact that the wines have been made by Pascal Lachaux for some 20 years now and that he and his wife Florence Arnoux (daughter of Robert Arnoux) have been running the Domaine since 1995.

Although always good, the quality of this Domaine’s wines has soared in recent vintages. These are hedonistic, layered Burgundies with intense aromatics and plush tannins. They are classy wines that deliver in spades. The vineyards are located mainly in Vosne Romanee and the immediately surrounding communes.

Description

94+ Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2015 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru is one of the more aromatically reticent wines in the range, opening in the glass with notes of coniferous forest floor, raspberry and currant leaf. On the palate, the wine is supple, silky and expansive, with a deep and sapid core of fruit, bright acids, and fine-grained, chalky tannins which assert themselves on the finish. This will need time, but the raw materials are promising.

94 Points Allen Meadows
A strikingly fresh, cool and highly restrained nose features notes of ripe red currants, floral, earth and hints of wood and the sauvage. There is equally good freshness and intensity to the vibrant and tightly coiled mineral-driven flavors that exhibit outstanding delineation on the taut, persistent and impeccably well-balanced finale. This is a relatively racy 2015 that will require extended aging before it will fully resolve its supporting tannins to arrive at its apogee. In sum, this is very impressive.
