Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, December 2014

    Tasted as individual parcels from varying sections of the Forêts St Georges and then as a proposed blend, this is a wine of immense quality and Grand Cru stature. A wine of so many layers, entering the mouth with charm and grace, in the mid palate, there is a delicious volume of dark berried fruits and then on the finish, there is spice and density. Huge potential.

  • BURG

    Burghound, January 2015,
    Score: 91-93

    (from an enormous 7.5 ha monopole planted in the early 1950s; from yields of only 17 hl/ha in 2012). Deep ruby hue. This is much more sauvage in character and notably less elegant with its ripe and very fresh dark berry fruit aromas that also evidence plenty of floral, earth and forest floor elements. There is excellent size, weight, punch and muscle to the broad-shouldered flavors that are very Nuits in character before concluding in a powerful yet velvety and palate coating finish. This is also terrific and well-worth your attention. Sweet Spot Outstanding Drink 2023+

  • ST

    Stephen Tanzer, March 2016,
    Score: 92+

    Bright, dark red with ruby tones. Classic south-side Nuits-Saint-Georges with captivating spicy perfume to the aromas of dark berries, kirsch, violet, crushed rock and leather. At once penetrating and enveloping, displaying a much silkier texture than the Petits Plets. Quite closed compared to the 2014 from barrel but wine nonetheless boasts a sexy, thick, three-dimensional texture. Black fruit flavors are complicated by wild leather and animal components, with a note of bitter chocolate emerging with air. Finishes with big but ripe tannins and subtle sweetness. Very reticent in the mid-palate today but has the chewy depth and mineral energy to support a long and graceful evolution in bottle. My score may turn out to be overly conservative. 2022-2035

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

Nuits-Saint-Georges

The second largest town after Beaune, Nuits St. Georges is known for ample wines that have textured tannins and rich fruit. Unlike other famous Côte de Nuits villages, it has no Grand Crus but does have a handful of exceptional premier cru vineyards such as Clos de l'Arlot, Les Pruliers and AuxMurgers. Its wines can be occasionally rustic, and this sets them apart from many of the more northern appellations as well as from the neighbouring Côte de Beaune whose wines (apart from Pommard) tend to be less structured and more fruit forward. This is no doubt due to a slightly increased presence of clay especially on the Primeaux-Prissey area of the appellation. Notable producers include Domaine de l'Arlot, Jean Grivot and Meo-Camuzet.
