The Domaine traces its recent history to 1947 when Gabriel d’Ardhuy and Eliane André met, married and established the Domaine d’Ardhuy. Gabriel went on to acquire prized parcels of land in wine areas such as Puligny-Montrachet, Gevrey-Chambertin, Clos de Vougeot and even Corton-Charlemagne. Gabriel and Eliane passed on their passion for vineyards to their 7 daughters who today, with a team of equally passionate wine lovers, proudly keep the tradition of environmentally friendly viticulture and respect for the terroir they have inherited. Domaine d’Arhuy’s own vineyards stretch all the way from Gevrey-Chambertin in the north to Puligny-Montrachet in the south and in between there are plots in vineyards such as Clos de Vougeot, Savigny-lès-Beaune, Pommard and Meursault amongst others. This wide range of terroirs includes land in 6 different Grand Cru Appellations (5 of them on the famous Hill of Corton), 15 Premier Cru Appellations and 15 Village Appellations.
All the vineyard holdings of Domaine d’Ardhuy were certified Organic and Biodynamic from the 2012 vintage onwards. However, after several challenging vintages due to the vagaries of the weather we made the decision in 2018 to put certification temporarily to one side in order to revamp our agricultural practices. Through their continuing respect for Terroir and the environment the aim is gradually to return to Organic certification from 2023. From the 2019 vintage they have been certified HEV Level 3 (High Environmental Value).
This wine captures the essence of the Côte de Nuits and the Côtes de Beaune; at once powerful and elegant. Notes of red fruit and toast, velvety with a long finish. It is youthful and drinking well now, though shows the potential to develop well in bottle over the next few years. A versatile food wine that can be enjoyed with white meat and more delicate red meats, mushroom dishes and soft cheeses.
The Clos des Langres vineyard is a Monopole, or “Monopoly” vineyard, owned entirely by one family, in this case the d’Arhuy family (most Burgundy vineyards are split amongst several different owners). It is a monument situated in the very heart of Burgundy, between Ladoix-Serrigny and Corgoloin. The site is ideally situated; it has good drainage, air flow and sun exposure and sits at about 245 to 255 meters aboue sea level. The parcel is at the confines of the Cote de Beaune and Cote de Nuits. Vine age varies and the average age of the vines is 50 years old. The winemaking varies according to the vintage.
