Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2021

    These vines are in the small commune of Comblanchien, lying between Nuits St Georges and Ladoix-Serrigny, but this wine has the presence of a Nuits St Georges. Such was the quality of the fruit in 2020 that Geraldine did 100% whole bunch fermentation. Full of red cherry, plum and bilberry, this has subtle leathery tannins and a bright lively finish.

    Moderate reduction knocks down the fruit so I would suggest decanting this if you're going to try a bottle young. Otherwise, there is both good energy and concentration to the medium weight flavors that conclude in a rustic and slightly edgy finish. It's hard to say whether the bottling caused this to be on the awkward side, but this clearly isn't ready for prime time. Drink: 2024+

    This is a very smart wine, and it is one of the longest and most detailed generic labels of the vintage. Not a big or bold style, but a refined wine with lovely layers and a suave feel throughout.

    In bottle. 34% whole bunch. Always high pH here so Géraldine feels she cannot risk more stems. A rather sombre black purple. Thick textured dark fruit with the white pepper tingle. 14.4% and it does show a little. Not so much in terms of overt heat but in the more sombre nature of the fruit.

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

Côte de Nuits-Villages

This communal appellation covers the vineyards of Fixin, Brochon, Premeaux, Comblanchien, and Corgoloin. Spread along the length of the Cotes de Nuits the wines of the different communes are, unsurprisingly, varied, reflecting a range of different exposures and nuances of soild type. The vast majority of production is red, with just a smattering of Chardonnay grown. The reds can offer very good value from the better producers.
