Small family farm, with 4 generations know-how, the Cacheux vineyard is located in the heart of the Vosne-Romanée village in Cote d’Or, Burgundy.

The farming of René Cacheux & Fils vineyard in Vosne-Romanée in Burgundy, produces great wines of Burgundy red and white, with the main grape variety Pinot Noir for red wines. The wines are made from hand picking and sorting carried out with great care to maintain the quality of the grapes.
We harvest our grapes Pinot Noir at their optimum quality in order to produce high-quality wines and terroir. To preserve the unique and ancestral terroir, we practice integrated vineyard management methods. Each appellation has its own expressive character, the sign of gentle winemaking. Every wine, from Domaine Cacheux, has great delineation, terroir and richness; they never lose the precision of flavors that could only be found in great wines.
The 2019 Vosne-Romanee Village has a clean, fresh nose with black cherry and light bilberry scents, touches of shoe polish in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins. Robust and heady in style, it just loses a bit of focus on the finish.
