The Wine

This wine comprises mostly of chardonnay with minor components of pinot blanc and pinot gris. Everyone who has ever tasted this wine complains forever after that they wished Armand would make more of it. Coming from vines nearly sixty years old at the edges of Chassagne, this is always a powerhouse Bourgogne Blanc, full of nerve and cut. The soil is a combination of clay and sand over white marl and yields are small. In my former restaurant life, I was always trying to cobble together enough to serve by the glass but year after year it was impossible. Sam Ehrlich CSW

About the Wine Maker

Domaine Heitz-Lochardet started in 1857. For many years vineyards were rent out and production was sold off to negociants. The new generation representing Armand Heitz has taken control of the Domaines new direction. He completed his oenology studies in 2011, and began recuperating his mother’s vineyards and converting them to full biodynamic practices. He completed his first vintage in 2013, guided by consulting oenologist Ludovic Pierrot who spent eight years at the legendary Domaine Leflaive, working alongside Anne-Claude Leflaive. Based in Comblanchien, just south of Nuits-Saint-Georges, Armand tends his plots that lie predominantly within the Meursault and Montrachet(s) villages. Biodynamic principals and regenerative viticulture in used. He believes in using only whole bunches in all of his wines, lending a very distinct vivaciousness and drive to each wine.
