2008 Arnoux (Lachaux) Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1468375 92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A trace of new wood sets off very fresh and elegant red berry fruit aromas cut with a distinct stoniness that give way to rich, refined and beautifully detailed medium weight flavors that possess fine mid-palate concentration and impeccable balance. A classic Latricières that displays just a touch of finishing austerity as well as the definite sense of underlying reserve. A great first vintage. Inner quote mark (1/2010)

90-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark 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. (ST) Inner quote mark (3/2010)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From a little over one acre of 52 year-old vines that Lachaux just acquired in a swap with long-time ex-pat vigneron Christopher Newman, the Arnoux 2008 Latricieres-Chambertin leads with scents of pungently smoky peat, mouth-watering soy, and concentrated red fruits, all of which then inform a palate of redoubtable density and tanninity. There is a certain somber impressiveness here even if little enticement or charm and to call the finish palate-staining is understatement. It’s an expensive ticket and an inaugural ride, but if you hang on for 6-8 years you might well be rewarded with a memorable experience, though one will want to consider this Pinot’s brooding personality in choosing what sort of animal sacrifice to make on its behalf. (DS) Inner quote mark (6/2010)
