Domaine Arnoux is a family run winery based in Chorey-les-Beaune and is headed up by Pascal Arnoux alongside his wife Caroline. Today, the Domaine covers more than 20 hectares, divided between the villages of Chorey-lès-Beaune, Savigny-lès-Beaune, Aloxe-Corton, Beaune and Pernand Vergelesses. Situated north of the capital of the Burgundy region, "En Genet" is a small Premier Cru plot of 35 year old vines covering about one hectare. The hand-picked grapes are fermented with the resulting wine then aged for 12 months in oak. Only around 5,000 bottles are produced each year.
Dark red in colour. Opens with an aromatically smoky nose which introduces red and black fruits. It charms the palate with complex dark fruit flavours and smooth tannins, evolving in the glass to reveal a solid and absolutely convincing structure. Rich and mature, represented by its good length dominated by red fruits.
Food pairing: Roasted Quail
