Founded in 1858, Domaine Robert Arnoux is a family-run estate and currently owns 14.5 hectares of some of the most prized vineyards in Vosne-Romanée and Nuits-Saint-Georges, and apart from a small plot of Aligote, all wines are red. They built a reputation for themselves when Pascal Lachaux became fully in charge of the winemaking back in 1990 and subsequently took over the domaine when his father-in-law Robert Arnoux passed away in 1995. The Domaine was then renamed to "Arnoux-Lachaux" in 2008; and passed down to the family's sixth generation, Charles Lachaux, in 2012.
Charles Lachaux is a rising star in Burgundy. He was a disciple of Lalou Bize-Leroy (of Domaine Leroy) in which he now follows similar practices of Lalou at Arnoux-Lachaux and takes on a more empirical approach rather than a scientific one. Working closely together with his father Pascal, they continue to manage the vineyard with organic growing methods, and now represent the most rapid change in style of any Burgundy domaine. With the massive improvements in their wines, demand has surged and thus so have prices - doubling, or even tripling - since the 2016 vintage. In a tasting of their 2018 vintage, Winehog's Steen Ohman said,
"Charles Lachaux is taking some giant leaps for, if not mankind, then at least for the hedonistic pleasure of yours truly and other connoisseurs. His 2018 wines are another clear step towards the very top echelon of Burgundy and Vosne-Romanee. They are airy, energetic, and vivid, with tremendous joie de vivre – true vins d’émotion."
