An even more elegant nose of spicy and floral red and black pinot fruit is nuanced by subtle traces of sandalwood, Asian-style tea, soy and anise. There is fine concentration to the relatively powerful sappy and mouth coating flavors that are shaped by wonderfully fine-grained tannins on the hugely long, balanced and moderately austere finale. This terrific effort is also quite silky yet it should have zero difficulty rewarding at least 15 to 20 years of cellar time. Jan 2016, www.burghound.com, Drink: 2029+

(100% vendange entier; 80% new oak): Deep red-ruby. Alluring aromas of black raspberry, licorice and minerals show a noble, deep vegetal nuance that reminded me of a young Romanée-Conti. The youthfully unevolved middle palate displays the depth, pliancy and freshness of the vintage at its best. Finishes extremely long and ripely tannic, with palate-saturating sweetness and mineral pungency. These 90-year-old vines were originally planted by the father of Robert Arnoux, according to Pascal, who added that the estate's vines in Suchots are even older, at 94. Jan 2016, www.vinous.com

Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux, created in 1858 and currently run by Florence and Pascal Lachaux, covers 14.5 hectares of land spanning 15 different Burgundy appellations including Grand Cru plots in Clos Vougoet, Romanee-Saint-Vivant and Echezeaux. Grapes go through a 3 to 4 week maceration period including cold soak and once the wines are ready for barrel, the percentage of new oak will vary from 30 to 100%. In the vineyards they believe in the raisonee" approach, trying to limit the chemicals used whilst ensuring the health of the vines.
