Crushable Beaujolais from Burgundy Wunderkind Armand Heitz

Armand Heitz, a wunderkind of the Côte d’Or, might easily have contented himself with making top rated cuvées from the world’s most famous terroir. Instead he decided to take on Beaujolais, and the results have been spectacular.
He's a force to be reckoned with. Since taking the reins of his family’s magnificent old domaine in Burgundy he's turned heads with the astonishing purity of his wine and his progressive approach to farming.

Heitz-Lochardet owns a laundry list of iconic vineyards, including Chevalier-Montrachet, Meursault-Perrières and Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot.
After earning his oenology degree in 2011, Armand gradually took over the management of these priceless sites, making an audacious pivot towards chemical-free, ultra-low impact viticulture.
A gamble anywhere, in Burgundy the stakes couldn’t be higher, and they have paid off.

Armand's bold-yet-silky Juliénas, from unique volcanic-schist soils, proves you don't have to spend three-figures to get a wine of incredible mineral complexity and aromatic delicacy from the hand of a young master. 
This wine is one the loveliest examples of regional terroir we’ve enjoyed in a long time. It's also one of the most incredible values in Cru Beaujolais.

A wine with so much depth and character, at such a reasonable price comes along once in a blue moon. Don’t miss this golden opportunity to stock up on a gem from one of France’s most important young producers.
