Tasting notes for the Bourgogne Rouge 2019 - Domaine Armand Heitz

  • EYE: The wine has a brilliant and intense red color, typical of wines from this region. Its clarity is perfect, offering beautiful transparency. The violet reflections indicate its youthfulness and freshness. When swirled in the glass, it forms light tears, indicating good viscosity.
  • NOSE: It reveals a delicate and expressive bouquet. One can perceive aromas of fresh red fruits, such as cherry and raspberry, accompanied by slightly floral notes. Subtle hints of sweet spices, like cinnamon and nutmeg, add an additional dimension to its aromatic complexity. There is also a slight presence of oak, reflecting its aging in oak barrels.
  • MOUTH: The 2019 vintage is light to medium-bodied, with supple and well-integrated tannins. The structure is balanced, offering a pleasant harmony. The flavors of red fruits are confirmed, accompanied by subtle notes of blackberry and licorice. A beautiful freshness is felt, bringing vivacity and finesse. The finish is elegant and persistent, leaving an impression of fruity freshness.

 

In short: The Bourgogne Rouge 2019 from the Domaine Armand Heitz is a wine that reflects the typicity of the region. Its delicate bouquet and balanced palate make it a pleasant choice for enthusiasts of light to medium-bodied red wines. It can be enjoyed now to savor its fruity freshness, but it can also be cellared for 3 to 5 years to allow its aromas to deepen and its tannins to further integrate. This red Burgundy wine pairs perfectly with a variety of dishes. It complements well with white meats such as roasted chicken, pork roasts, or veal escalopes. It can also be enjoyed with mushroom-based dishes, light charcuterie, or fresh goat cheeses.

Great winemaker of the Côte de Beaune

 

The story of the Domaine Armand Heitz began with the Nié-Vantey family, which was well-known in the wine business during the 1860s. In 1900, Georges Lochardet, a successful wine merchant from the Côte de Beaune, married Marcelle Nié. They owned 20 hectares of grapevines as well as a few estates. Their son Armand Lochardet inherited half of the properties, which he worked on before leaving them to his three children.

His daughter Brigitte married Christian Heitz in 1983. A few years later, they founded the Domaine Heitz-Lochardet together, in Burgundy. The actual harvesting work was entirely done by Joseph Drouhin, who had a company in Beaune. Brigitte Lochardet also took great care of the vines of the estate, in accordance with the principles of organic winemaking.

In 2011, Armand Heitz (grandson of Armand Lochardet), fresh out of his school of oenology, took the helm of the Chassagne-Montrachet estate. Permaculture and agroecology were like a mantra for him. As a result, the work environment of the family business greatly improved. In the vineyard, Armand does the seeding, de-budding and composting on his own, as well as plenty of other tasks. This policy of non-interventionism, added to grapes of high quality are a winning combination.
