Tech + Tasting Notes
Domaine Heitz-Lochardet started in 1857 with the Nie-Vantey family, owners of many vineyards from Santenay to Clos de Vougeot. Post-phylloxera, many of the vineyards were sold, but the best Cote de Beaune vineyards were kept in the family by Georges Lochardet. Two generations later, Brigitte Lochardet married Christian Heitz and her share of the family vineyards became Heitz-Lochardet, which Brigitte organically farmed. In 2011, Brigitte's son Armand Heitz finished his oenology studies and began taking the vineyards biodynamic. Aromatic, extremely balanced, and expressive of the terroir. Quite fuller than other Bourgogne blancs with a creamier approach and lots of substance. Used barriques balance its massive acidity.
