2008 and 2007 Red Burgundies (Mar 2010)

(Lachaux purchased just over a half-hectare of 53-year-old vines from Christopher Newman) Good medium red. Nose offers dark cherry, smoky oak and complex soil tones. At once dense and energetic, conveying an impression of rather strong energy from the combination of firm acids and underlying minerality. In a cooler, almost peppery style, with the wine’s acidity carrying the finish. More austere than most of Lachaux’s wines from Vosne-Romanee
