    Goedhuis, December 2020

    Formerly bottled as ‘Petit Arlot’, the vines in this parcel are now over 25 years old and the domaine is labelling this cuvée as Premier Cru Mont des Oiseaux. Delicately restrained on the nose, on the palate there is a kaleidoscope of red berry fruits. This has excellent volume and richness, and the 40% whole bunch fruit gives a bit of spice and texture on the finish.

    Score: 88-90

    From a clonal selection of vines inside the Clos de l’Arlot and including 40% whole cluster, the 2019 Nuits Saint-Georges Mont des Oiseaux 1er Cru offers fragrant red cherries, orange peel, brown spices and savory notes on the feisty nose. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins that render this a more structured Nuit Saint-Georges. The gritty, tight finish leaves ferrous hints on the aftertaste. Give it 2–3 years in bottle. Drink 2023 - 2033

    Score: 89-91

    Produced from young vines in the Clos d'Arlot, the 2019 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Cuvée Mont des Oiseaux offers up a pure, fruit-driven bouquet of plums and berries, framed by a deft application of oak. Medium to full-bodied, ample and lively, it's fleshy and concentrated, with a charming, supple profile.

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.
