This wine has long been one of the very finest examples of Bourgogne AOC. It comes from four parcels of Pinot Fin, the revered Pinot cultivar, including one parcel planted in 1959 at Premeaux, south of the Nuits-Saint-Georges township. The latter vineyard perennially suffers from millerandage (resulting in tiny berries and bunches) and thus generates very low yields of rich, concentrated juice. There are also parcels in Chambolle, Vosne and Nuits proper. Even at this level, the wine is fermented with 40% whole bunches and 50% of the cuvée is raised in 2 year old barrels, the remainder in tank. Old vines, low yields and great terroirs—this possesses the kind of perfume, texture and intensity of fruit rarely seen at this level. Unfortunately, our allocation of the 2014 is smaller than normal. Importer Note

Details

If there was an official dictionary of Burgundy and you looked up “progress”, two of the words you would surely find would be “Charles and Lachaux”. The young Lachaux, inspired by good friends and mentors like Olivier Lamy, has been pushing the standards of his vineyard work to such high levels that he is even making some of his most famous neighbours in Vosne look a little old fashioned. He has also radically altered his family’s approach in the cellar, in a few short years, introducing whole bunches where there were none used before and strongly diminishing the percentage of new oak used. While his father Pascal (who still works in the Domaine), was already doing great things, the son has certainly brought a new approach and fresh energy in his pursuit to craft the finest possible wines from his family’s legendary terroirs. The wines here are brighter, purer and longer than they have ever been. As the notes and scores below make clear, 2014 is an outstanding vintage here. - Importer Note
