Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2019

    The vines actually lie within premier cru Clos de l’Arlot, but the estate chooses to declassify this young vine parcel to village level, and make a wine with bright, attractive, early-drinking appeal. White stone fruit characters and hints of jasmine, this balances elegance and perfume with an alluring generosity. Charming and approachable.

    The 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges La Gerbotte was taken from tank, scheduled for bottling in December 2019. It has a well-defined bouquet with scents of apple blossom, sliced pear and crushed stone, quite Puligny-like in style. The palate is well balanced, the 20% new oak lending midpalate weight. Light walnut and fumé notes define the finish, which displays moderate length. Fine. 2021 - 2031

    Score: 88-90

    This is aromatically similar to the Au Leurey though there is a bit more volume to the delicious and attractively textured medium weight flavors that possess good dry extract that imparts a sappy mouthfeel to the nicely long finale. This pretty but decidedly forward effort will need to develop better depth to merit the upper end of my predicted range though. Drink 2022+

    La Gerbotte forms the top left sector of the vineyards, adjacent to Clos de la Maréchale. 20% new wood. Fine yellow with a light green tint. The bouquet is blossoming with ripe apples, fresh pears, a little bit of lemon, intense fruit then opens out to a sweeter fleshier back end of the palate. Will tighten up later when prepared for bottling. Quite a long finish.

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.
