2017 Auxey-Duresses (ARMA22217A)
The estate's humblest wine, but paradoxically the last to be harvested. There is fresh vibrant spicy raspberry fruit, good depth and an earthy tannic structure that balances it nicely.
2017 Volnay (ARMA24217A)
Nice to have this back after its absence last year due to frost damage. A burst of fresh raspberry fruit settles down to be silky, smooth and gentle, with a lovely relaxed fluidity all the way to the gentle finish.
2017 Auxey-Duresses 1er Cru (ARMA30217A)
From a vineyard abutting Monthélie. The fruit is blacker than in the village, but equally spicy, and there is greater intensity and richness. The tannins are structured, but ripe and fine, almost melting, and there is a long, generous and fresh finish.
2016 Auxey-Duresses 1er Cru (ARMA30216A)
From a vineyard abutting Monthélie. A wine with bags of energy, ripe, perfumed and crunchy, perfectly balanced and elegant, and an almost ethereal finish. If you are looking for a wine that epitomises all that is best about 2016, here it is.
2017 Pommard 1er Cru Clos Des Epeneaux (ARMA32217A)
Normally there is some whole-bunch fermentation used here, but this year the harvest was so plentiful that there was room only for grapes, and no stems in the cuves. The wine is none the worse for it - in fact it is the most delicious I have tried in cask. It is rich and dense, with a core of ripe spicy black fruit and lots of power but remains elegant and pure with no trace of heaviness. A fresh green minty note balances the ripe chocolaty melting tannins, and the finish has a big hit of saline minerality. This is so seductive it is tempting to drink it right now, but it has considerable potential and will be lovely for years to come.
2014 Pommard 1er Cru Clos Des Epeneaux (ARMA32214A)
Just 12 hl/ha produced, and all vinified together rather than in separate parcels - the procedure when yields are normal. As elegant as ever, this has a core of dark red fruit tinged with black pepper and cloves, firm but fine tannins and a very long finish. Drink 2020 - 2030
2013 Pommard 1er Cru Clos Des Epeneaux (ARMA32213D)
Ripe, rounded and fine, this is perfectly blanced, showing aromatic red cherry fruit with a hint of black in the background, and very supple tannins. Did someone say Pommard produces harsh, tannic wines? Not here.
2017 Volnay 1er Cru Les Fremiets (ARMA40217A)
Adjacent to Pommard, and thus always on the more powerful side. This year it has that power, but the charm wins through: there is a seductive perfume of violets and raspberries on the nose, and the wine is balanced, gentle and seamless, almost ethereal in its purity. Underneath of course, is the iron glove of Volnay in the form of very fine tannins and a long mineral flourish on the finish. A complex and deliciously seductive wine.
2016 Volnay 1er Cru Les Fremiets (ARMA40216A)
Adjacent to Pommard, and thus always on the more powerful side. No new wood used here, and the result is very spicy, with notes of clove and cinnamon to complement the intense, plummy ripe fruit. Lots of energy here too.
2017 Bourgogne Aligote (ARMA06217A)
A blend of two varieties of Aligoté ? Doré and Vert. It is perfumed and ripe, with a delicious juicy lemon backbone that keeps it fresh through to the finish
2017 Bourgogne Blanc (ARMA09217A)
Ripe, scented and fresh, with smooth creamy yellow fruit and a bright lemony finish.
