Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux

Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux and Charles Lachaux Negoce En Primeur 2020

This is a domaine on a mission. Previously called Domaine Robert Arnoux, this family-owned estate was founded in 1858. Today, it is run by Charles Lachaux, the sixth generation, alongside his mother Florence Arnoux-Lachaux.

There are 14.5 hectares of vines here, all Pinot Noir, spread over six villages and 15 terroirs. These comprise four grands crus, five premiers crus, five villages and a regional wine, the ‘Pinot Fin’.

Charles, Florence’s eldest son and a man of apparently limitless energy, joined the domaine in October 2011, taking over in 2015. Since then, he has shaken things up, overhauling the vineyards and introducing the long arching vine canes used by his neighbours Jean-Yves Bizot and Lalou Bize-Leroy, who has become something of a mentor to Charles. 100% whole cluster fermentation is used, with ageing in mostly old oak barrels.

We were appointed exclusive UK agents in the 2016 vintage. Charles and Florence have recently decided to release future vintages only once bottled, meaning that the domaine's next release, of the 2020 vintage, will be next year, 2023.

In the 2018 vintage, Charles started a négociant project, called simply Charles Lachaux. We are thrilled to be the exclusive UK agent. The 2020s will be released in Spring 2022.

We were appointed exclusive UK agents in the 2016 vintage, making the 2019s our fourth annual release. They will be released in due course.

In addition, Charles started a new négociant project last year, called Charles Lachaux. We released, as exclusive UK agents, the inaugural 2018 vintage 2 years ago and 2019 last year. The 2020s will be released in Spring 2022.
