Tasting notes for the Folie Sauvage 2019 - Domaine Armand Heitz

  • EYE: The wine has a bright and brilliant ruby red color with purple reflections. The clarity is simply perfect.
  • NOSE: Expressive and aromatic. Aromas of freshly picked red fruits such as cherry and raspberry blend with delicate notes of sweet spices, cinnamon, and vanilla. Floral nuances of violet and rose bring a perfumed dimension. Subtle notes of undergrowth and licorice can also be detected, adding an additional complexity to this aromatic bouquet.
  • MOUTH: A light and fresh vintage. Red fruits dominate, with nuances of cherry, raspberry, and strawberry. Sweet spices harmoniously blend, providing a subtle warmth to the overall taste. The tannins are smooth and well-integrated, offering a balanced structure. The finish is fresh and slightly tangy, leaving a pleasant sensation in the mouth.


In short: This Folie Sauvage 2019 by the Domaine Armand Heitz comes from a fully biodynamic wine estate, but is only produced in limited quantities. Its expressive nose and fruity palate make it a versatile and accessible choice for all Burgundy wine enthusiasts. It pairs perfectly with grilled meat dishes, soft cheeses, and mushroom-based dishes. This superb cuvée will benefit from decanting before tasting to optimize your experience. It can also be aged for 3 to 5 years to allow its flavors to further develop.

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.
