It is always interesting to check how a wine evolves in bottle. In this case we are going to have a look at a burgundian red that we tasted in 2007. We are talking about the Regis Forey’s Vosne-Romanée village, that gave us a good impression in that time. A style of wine that we really appreciate.
This is the second wine in a row from this village of reference, same vintage, after the Regis Forey one. In this case the producer is the Domaine Robert Arnoux that, since 1990, is managed by Pascal Lachaux, son-in-law of the later Robert Arnoux. The domain has belonged to the Arnoux family for five generations. During this time they have gather parcels in so famous curs as Romanée-St-Vivant (35a), Clos de Vougeot (43a), Echezeaux (95a) y Suchots (0.5a) in Vosne, and some other premier cru in Vosne y Nuits-St-Georges, up to a total of 12ha. One of the main virtues of this domain is that most of the vines they harvest are quite old. Because of this, and because of the viticultural practices, yields are kept low here.
