Collection: ARMAND HEITZ

Domaine Armand Heitz’s history goes back to 1857. Over the years, the family of Georges Lochardet, who was a wine merchant acquired significant prime vineyards totaling 20 ha, and when he passed away he left 50% of it to his son Armand. Armand had 3 children, and in 1983 his daughter Brigitte married Christian Heitz, and few years later Domaine Armand Heitz was founded. For years, all the wines were sold to Maison Drouhin who took care of the vineyards as well. After finishing his formal studies in 2011, Brigitte & Christian’s son, Armand Heitz took charge of the domaine. At the beginning, he received from the family two small plots to explore and test his winemaking skills. Following his first success, he got control of more serious plots, including tiny holding in Chevalier-Montrachet, and produced his first commercial wines in 2013.

Since the very beginning, Armand decided to use Biodynamic viticulture principles in all his vineyards. The white wine making is traditional with minimal use of new oak. The red wines are vinified with whole clusters, a method Armand feels suits his Biodynamic viticulture fruit best.
