On the nose it's as though the Reignots and Suchots have switched places as this is much, much more restrained with its intensely floral red berry and spice suffused nose that merges seamlessly into impressively rich and full-bodied middle weight flavors that possess just a hint of minerality on the hugely long and palate staining finish. This lightly austere and beautifully well-balanced effort is an obvious wine of class and grace. Jan 2016, www.bureghound.com

(100% vendange entier; 80% new oak; from a healthy crop of 42 hectoliters per hectare):Bright red-ruby. A touch of reduction mostly dissipated to reveal classic Suchots scents of black raspberry, Oriental spices, flowers and fresh herbs, plus an intriguing note of paprika. Wonderfully silky, plush, generous wine with sneaky inner-mouth energy. The wine's sweet oak component will need a few years to harmonize with its fruits and flowers. Finishes with terrific length and substantial ripe tannins. This should ultimately make a wonderfully complete Burgundy. 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.
