  • Goedhuis, December 2017

    The domaine had previously made two red cuvées from this 4 hectare walled monopole in the heart of Prémeaux-Prissey, the younger vine cuvée having been declassified to village level (known as ‘Le Petit Arlot’). From 2015 onwards, since these vines had reached full maturity, the estate began to bottle them as bona fide premier cru under the cuvée ‘Mont des Oiseaux’. But alas, such were the losses in 2016 they have blended the wine from the ‘Mont des Oiseaux’ parcel at the top of the Clos along with the rest of the Clos de l’Arlot to make one red cuvée from their walled monopole. We should see a return of the ‘Mont des Oiseaux’ from 2017 onwards. This cuvée has the sweet cherry and strawberry scent of its 50% whole bunch fruit on vibrant display. The fruit is highlighted by sprinkles of spice – cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla – and the red berry, raspberry fruit core swirls around the palate with impressive volume. Ripe but structural tannins are well managed and a match for the generous 50% new oak.

  • Neal Martin, December 2017, Score: 92-94

    The 2016 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Clos de l’Arlot was sampled from a preprepared blend of barrels. It includes 50% whole cluster fruit and the same percentage of new oak. It has a crisp, precise, wet stone-tinged bouquet with vivid Morello, redcurrant and crushed strawberry fruit. It is not a powerful bouquet but prioritizes precision. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin. The fruit is a mixture of black and red, but there's quite a conspicuous graphite element that flourishes on the finish. With impressive persistence in the mouth, this is a more masculine Clos de l’Arlot than previous years and will benefit from several years in bottle. Top notch. Drink 2021-2040

  • Burghound, January 2018, Score: 90-92

    A discreet application of wood sets off the spicy and markedly floral aromas, and in particular violet, of plum and dark currant. The attractively textured medium weight flavors are at once succulent yet precise while exhibiting excellent length. As is usually the case, this is a wine of finesse but one that doesn't lack for punch and solid depth. Drink: 2024+

  • Jancis Robinson, January 2018, Score: 16.5

    Paler than the Clos des Forêts and very slightly reduced. Rather muted – as though it came from a different stable than the Forêts. Soft and loose. Drink 2023-2036


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.)


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.
