BOURGOGNE
 

Bourgogne, also called Burgundy, same as Bordeaux, is the soul of French wine. Viticulture in Burgundy can traced back to 2nd century. The region runs from Chablis in the north, then Côte d'Or, to Mâcon in the south. Côte d'Or are the soul of Bourgogne wines, splitting into Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune. The majority of red wine production in the Côte d'Or is the Pinot noir grape, while white wines are the chardonnay grape.
 
Bourgogne is terroir-oriented region in France. Opposed to Bordeaux, Bourgogne classifications are geographically-focused. A specific vineyard or region will bear a given classification, regardless of the wine's producer. The main levels in the Bourgogne classifications, in descending order of quality, are: Grand crus, Premier crus, village appellations, and finally regional appellations.

About Domaine Heitz Lochardet

BIODYNAMIC SUCCESSOR OF BURGUNDY VIGNERONS

Armand Heitz, the owner of Domaine Heitz Lochardet, takes good use of the vineyards which his mother Brigitte Heitz had been taken good care of. After he finished his studies and become an oenologist in 2011, with the support of his parents, he began recuperating his mother's organically farmed vineyard and converting them to full biodynamic practices.

Domaine Heitz Lochardet started in 1857 with the Nie-Vantey family who owns vineyards from Santenay to Clos de Vougeot. Post phylloxera, Georges Lochardet kept the best Côte de Beaune parts and sold the others. After 2 generations, Brigitte Lochardet married Christian Heitz with her share of organically farmed vineyard - and become the Heitz Lochardet. THe grapes are then sold to Maison Joesph Drouhin.

Wines of Domaine Heitz Lochardet are aromatic, extremely balanced and expressive of their terroirs - classic nods to old-school Burgundy winemaking practices. Armand completed the first vintage with the guidance of consulting oeonologist Ludovic Pierreot, who worked alongside Anne-Claude Leflaive at the legendary Domaine Leflaive for eight years. Ludovic is also the matriach of Biodynamics in Cote d'Or.
