Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2019

    Formerly bottled as ‘Petit Arlot’, now at over 25 years of age the domaine is labelling this cuvée as premier cru Mont des Oiseaux. With hints of damson and sloes, this 2018 reflects a perfect integration of fruit, tannins and alcohol. It has a central tannic core, aided by a depth of fruit and matière and the zip of acid on the finish lifts the palate to perfection.

    Score: 88-91

    The 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges Mont des Oiseaux 1er Cru, which comes from the youngest vines inside Clos de l’Arlot, is matured in 30% new oak. It comes from clonal selection vines instead of massal selection for the Clos de l’Arlot. The fragrant bouquet features scents of black cherries, cassis and light violet aromas that are neatly integrated with the oak. The medium-bodied palate offers a smooth entry. There is decent density to this Mont des Oiseaux, and a slightly peppery and persistent finish. Good freshness here, but it deserves three years in bottle. 2022 - 2037

    Score: 90-93

    This comes from younger vines in the upper part of the amphitheatre. Pretty pink to red colour with a most attractive perfumed, soft red fruit nose, quite floral. Medium bodied on the palate with some tannins behind and a healthy natural acidity. Medium length here, very typical of the fine-boned structure of a Premeaux wine.

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.
