Arnoux-Lachaux

The vineyard is just below Malconsorts and La Tache with more clay in the soil. Arnoux-Lachaux's covers the top of the hill to bottom, giving complexity and a true representaiton of the site. Vines average 35-40 years-old. The wines were made with 80% whole cluster and aged in oak barrels, 20% new.

(90-93) points
"(80% vendange entier; 20% new oak): Deep red. Distinctly wild aromas of black raspberry, violet, leather and game. Very rich and fine-grained, conveying an impression of medicinal reserve to its complex flavors of raspberry, black cherry, licorice and wild herbs. Offers a superb combination of clarity and depth. Finishes juicy and long, with serious ripe tannins and a repeating leathery nuance."
