Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux, Romanee-Saint-Vivant 2008

The Romanee-Saint-Vivant from Arnoux-Lachaux is made from a 0.375 ha plot in the southern part of the vineyard – just above the garden of Bernard Gros and just north of La Grande Rue. The 2008 edition of this lovely wine offers a quite expressive nose, with dark and red fruits – cherries, raspberries and blueberries – spiced with coffee, oak and a refined floral element. On the palate very lovely refined fruit … with a very fine depth and complexity. It’s intense and well balanced – quite forward after some time in the glass – offering a delicate midpalate and a long complex finish. The 2008 vintage and this refined vineyard really suits the somewhat dense style of the domaine. Seductive and refined – big but still quite lightfooted – Impressive!

  • Carpe Diam … seize the cork … a small test of closures It´s getting increasingly difficult and expensive to find high quality corks for our beloved Burgundies. The share of corked wines (tainted with TCA) seems to increase over the years, and many think the Premox problems somehow are related to the decreasing and variable quality of the corks available. Quite many producers are therefore looking for alternatives ...
