Viticulture is becoming more and more important as global warming sets the scene for richer, weightier Burgundies.
Wednesday included a very interesting tour in the vineyards of Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux, guided by the super-dynamic Charles Lachaux – a man on a mission.
Charles has taken things to the next level in the vineyards, and is making rapid progress pushing viticulture even further.
His vineyards are full of biodiversity and life; this is very exciting indeed, and points to a new, invigorated future for Bourgogne. Dynamism in a biodynamic setting.

Domaine Henri Gouges
Tremendous 2019s from Domaine Henri Gouges. This vivid vintage does very well with Gouges’ classical style.
Antoine Gouges can smile with some beautiful 2019s in the cellar.
Domaine Chopin in Comblanchien has produced some lively, vivid 2019s: This estate deserves your attention.

Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair
Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair has produced some intense, lively 2019s.
Comte Louis-Michel Liger-Belair
Liger-Belair’s 2019s offer a strong signature and simultaneously a fine expression of their individual terroirs. Hedonistic treasures for the cellar. 😊
The key is maintaining the unique 2019 energy – pointing at a relatively short elevage
