Domaine Robert Arnoux
Established in 1858, Florence (née Arnoux) and Pascal Lachaux are the fifth generation to run this estate. It was something of an accident of fate which brought Pascal to Vosne as he trained as a pharmacist and, on the way to start a new job, he agreed to help his Father in law with the harvest. He never left.
Florence and Pascal have invested consistently over the years in the Domaine, building a new cuverie, renovating the cellar and most recently building a stylish tasting room next to Florence’s office. They have also invested in vineyards, building the Domaine to today’s fourteen hectares with a purchase of Latricières Chambertin being their most recent addition to the vineyard holdings. Pascal also buys in grapes and makes a négociant wine under the Pascal Lachaux at Domaine Robert Arnoux label. From 2008 the Domaine name changes to Domaine Lachaux Arnoux.
They work in an organic way but as with many of our growers, they don’t label their wine as such. Their respect of the environment, their desire for the future health of their vineyards and their vines is part of their philosophy and their goal is to make the best wine that they can in a sustainable way.
From his Bourgogne Rouge Pinot Fin right through the range to his Romanée St Vivant these are fabulous wines and Pascal can be justifiably proud of the enhancement that he’s made to the Arnoux reputation. The future looks secure with three Lachaux sons, the eldest of which, Charles, has just completed his oenology BTS at Beaune and is heading to Oregon and South Africa to gain valuable vinification experience, away from home.
