Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, November 2018

    This is one of Domaine de l’Arlot’s later additions, purchased in the early 1990s. Whole bunch has been reduced from 100% in 2016 right down to 20% in 2017, and the wine has a delicious concentration of cherry fruit, with savoury drive and supple texture. It has a defined and elegant finish.

    Neal Martin, January 2019,
    Score: 92-94

    The 2017 Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots 1er Cru, matured in 45% new oak, has a pure bouquet of black cherries, raspberry and crushed strawberry, nicely focused and quite sensual in style. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chalky tannin, rather masculine in style for a Les Suchots but very tensile toward the mineral-driven, quite voluminous finish. There is just 17% whole bunches here. 2021 - 2040

  • BURG

    Burghound, January 2019,
    Score: 90-92

    There is just enough reduction to shave the top notes from the softly oaky nose of floral, spice and dark raspberry. There is good richness and volume to the velvet-textured medium-bodied flavors that are surprisingly robust on the mildly tangy if solidly lingering finish. This is presently somewhat awkward but I suspect that it will ultimately come together. Drink 2027+

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.
