(The following is from the importer's materials) The special grade field Echezeaux is located in Flagey-Echezeaux on the north side of Vosne-Romanée and is a field consisting of various slope orientations, altitudes, slopes, and soils. The plot owned by Arnoux Lachot is a small plot with thin topsoil called Rouge du Bas, located halfway up the slope of Echezeaux. The sunny terroir facing east, located at an altitude of approximately 270 to 280 meters, matures grapes with high sugar content and acidity. After harvesting and sorting the grapes, maceration takes place for 7 to 11 days. The ratio of whole bunch fermentation is changed for each vintage. Afterwards, the wine is aged in new barrels of approximately 10% in village names, approximately 20% in first-grade fields, and approximately 30% in special-grade fields. By aging in a relatively low proportion of new barrels, we are able to express the characteristics of each terroir and the grape's original dense fruit flavor without adding too much oak flavor to the wine. The result is an exquisite Echezeaux that draws you in with its powerful, dense fruit flavor, and captivates you with its elegant expression that harmonizes with fine tannins and delicate minerals.

Arnoux Lachaux

A long-established Vosne-Romanée restaurant transformed by reforms

Arnoux Lachot is famous as a prestigious domaine in Vosne Romanée. Since 2015, under the direction of Charles, the 6th generation head of the family, the company has aimed to create ``emotional'' wines, and has been attracting attention both domestically and internationally as a ``shining new star.''

A prestigious Vosne-Romanée family with a history of over 150 years.
Arnoux-Rachaud is a domaine renamed in 2008 by Robert Arnoux, who is famous as a prestigious domaine in Vosne-Romanée. The domaine is located in the southern part of Vosne-Romanée, near Nuits-Saint-Georges.

Founded in 1858, this historic domaine has remained in the same location as a viticulturalist for over 150 years.In addition to Romanée-Saint-Vivant, this historic domaine has four wineries: Clos de Vougeot, Echezeaux, and Latricière-Chambertin. We own approximately 14ha of fields, including two Grand Crus.

Mr. Pascal Lachot, son-in-law of the fourth generation Mr. Robert Arnoux, has been in charge of the fifth generation since his father-in-law passed away in 1995, expanded the cellar in 2005, and added Latriciere Chambertin to the lineup in 2008. In the same year, he changed the name of the domaine to Arnoux Lachot, named after his father-in-law and himself.

Currently leading the winery is Pascal's eldest son, Charles. He joined the domaine in 2012, and in 2015, upon his father's retirement, he was given full responsibility for all operations. We have implemented various reforms such as whole bunch fermentation and stricter field work, and are driving the development of the domaine.
