Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, January 2014

    Marching alongside Richebourg and Romanée St Vivant this highly prestigious 1er Cru consists of vines planted in 1945, 1950 and 1983. This combination of aged vines produces a wine with stunningly sweet raspberry and strawberry fruits initially, followed by a tight tannic structure on the finish. A wine of huge potential.

    Neal Martin, December 2013,
    Score: 91-93

    From vines located just below Richebourg on the other side of the lane, the 2012 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Suchots has a precise, tightly coiled bouquet that takes time to unfurl in the glass, reluctantly offering enticing raspberry, bergamot and Earl Grey. The palate is well-balanced with ripe, fleshy tannins counterbalanced by crisp acidity. It clams up a little towards the finish, although bottle age will allow it to mellow and unwind. Great mineralite on the aftertaste comes through with aeration to cap everything off nicely.

    (from vines planted in 1950). This is also intensely floral with highly spiced aromas of cool and airy plum, cherry, tea and violet scents. The mouth feel of the medium-bodied flavors is pure silk thanks mainly to the ultra-fine grained tannins that are still quite firm and I very much like the excellent persistence and lovely balance that should enable this to age effortlessly yet drink well young too. In short, this is terrific and like its younger sibling it is very Vosne in character. Drink 2022+

    Burghound, Janaury 2014,
    Score: 91-93

    A reserved and almost mute nose required a lot of swirling to liberate the timid aromas of cool and airy plum, cherry, spice and violet suffused aromas. In much the same fashion as the Clos des Forêts the mouth feel of the medium-bodied flavors is pure silk thanks mainly to the ultra-fine grained tannins. To be sure though the finish is not soft as this really firms up and I very much like the excellent persistence and really lovely balance that should enable this to age effortlessly yet drink well young too. Drink 2022+

Producer

Domaine de l'Arlot

Domaine de l'Arlot was created in 1987 when AXA Millésimes purchased the property in Prémeaux, just south of Nuits St Georges. Its history as a domaine, however, stretches back far into the Burgundian annals passing through the Vienot and Belin dynasties before AXA’s acquisition. The domaine’s recent history has been shaped by the influence of Jean-Pierre de Smet who ran the domaine for almost two decades before Christian Seely took over direction. In 2014 Christian installed Géraldine Godot as technical manager and winemaker. A native Burgundian, she is a qualified microbiologist and oenologist, and looks set for a bright future at this Côte de Nuits estate. The domaine favours whole bunch fermentation, seeking to produce wines with refinement and finesse. (Not to be confused with Domaine Arlaud in Morey St Denis.)

Region

Vosne-Romanée

The vineyards of the modest village of Vosne Romanée are arguably the most sought after in the Côte d'Or. It is host to excellent Village and Premier Cru wines, but it is its most famous Grand Crusthat truly stand out: Romanée-Conti, La Tâche, Richebourg, Grands Echézeaux, Echézeaux, Romanée St. Vivant and La Romanée as well as Cros Parentoux, a Premier Cru vineyard which attracts Grand Cru attention (and prices). Vosne-Romanée can be remarkably robust and powerful, yet be charming and fleshy giving it one of the most diverse styles of the region.
