Armand Heitz Chambertin Grand Cru 2020
Since 2019, the label has shifted names from Heitz-Lochardet to Armand-Heitz to reflect the strides the winemaker has made since taking the reins. Organic & Biodynamic
The winemaking tradition at Domaine Armand Heitz dates back to 1857. Domaine Armand Heitz is located in Chassagne-Montrachet and was founded in the mid-1980s by Armand Heitz’s parents Brigette and Christian with initially just 5 hectares. Armand studied oenology and then decided to take over his family’s vines after completing his studies in 2011. For years, his mother, Brigette had contracted these vines to Maison Joseph Drouhin. And since taking over Armand has sought about regaining control of more of the vines under the domaine. He made his first vintage in 2013 with the help of consulting oenologist Ludovic Pierrot who had spent eight years working with Anne-Claude Leflaive at Domaine Leflaive. Armand farms the vineyards using biodynamic practices and his winemaking style is traditional in approach with the use of new oak kept at a minimum, usually around just 20-25%.
