  • Goedhuis, December 2019

    A tiny parcel which was a hugely astute purchase by the domaine in 1990. 50% whole bunch vinification allows the wine to express the grace that is so characteristic of Romanée St Vivant. Breezy aromas of raspberries and loganberries, it balances sweet, intense fruit flavours with a touch of reserve. Beautiful, pure and tremendously persistent.

  • Neal Martin, January 2020, Score: 95-97

    The 2018 Romanée-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru is matured in 20% new oak. It has a very intense bouquet of bright red currant, wild strawberry, pomegranate and rose petal aromas that feels sensual and seductive. The medium-bodied palate offers succulent, fleshy, quite grippy tannins that lend this Romanée-Saint-Vivant volume and mass. It is very well balanced and pure, and feels structured, almost Richebourg-like, toward the persistent finish. This is a very serious Grand Cru that will offer 20 to 30 years of drinking pleasure. 2025 - 2050

  • Burghound, January 2020, Score: 92-94

    Subtle but not invisible wood influence is present on the ultra-spicy yet still quite restrained nose of pretty red berry liqueur-like aromas. The attractively fresh and vibrant medium weight flavors possess a juicy but still very well delineated mouthfeel before culminating in a punch and beautifully persistent finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth. Note too that this is a very firm RSV that is going to require every bit of a decade to soften up and one that should reward 20+. Drink 2036+

  • Jasper Morris MW, January 2020, Score: 92-97

    One third whole bunch vinification. 13.3% alcohol. A fine depth of red purple colour. The nose is very backward still, not much in the way of aromatics, with a thick weight of deep grainy raspberry fruit covering the palate. Almost a little raw at the back, but shows real promise. It takes time to see the detail. Time in the glass then brings out the roses with the raspberries, some white pepper too. Real raw intensity here. It is going to be good! Excellent acidity.

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.)Read less

Region

Romanée Saint Vivant

Romanée-St-Vivant, which takes its name from the monastery of St-Vivant founded in c. 900, is a Grand Cru vineyard in Vosne-Romanée on the Côte de Nuits in Burgundy. It is the largest of Vosne-Romanée's six Grands Crus and produces red wine only. The vineyard is located on the slope to the north of the town of Vosne-Romanée and is the nearest vineyard to this village. Romanée-Saint-Vivant's soils are deep and rich in clay and lime, which means the wines of Romanée-St-Vivant are usually lighter and less powerful than its neighbours'. Domaine de la Romanée Conti is the largest proprietor, owning over half of the area's 9.5 ha.
