Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, December 2021

    Formerly bottled as ‘Petit Arlot’, the vines in this parcel are now over 25 years old and the domaine has created a new label reflecting its 1er Cru status: “Mont des Oiseaux”, named after the old track which overlooks the quarry of the Clos. A denser and darker fruit style than some years. Its luscious style shows off the richness of the vintage. It has a free and easy feel, with very fine tannins and a lovely lift of acidity on the finish.

  • BURG

    Burghound, January 2022,
    Score: 88-91

    A discreet dollop of wood sets off ripe aromas of cassis, black cherry and a whiff of warm earth. There is again both good volume and richness to the relatively opulent flavors that conclude in a youthfully austere and notably better-balanced finale. This should drink reasonably well on the early side if desired. Drink: 2026+

  • JAM

    Jasper Morris MW, January 2022,
    Score: 87-90

    All destemmed, and not yet racked. A deepish crimson purple colour. Dark red fruit on the palate, juicy, but very ripe with some of the peach quality alongside ripe red fruit. High acidity behind, just short of any volatility.

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.
