Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, November 2021

    These vines actually lie within 1er Cru Clos de l’Arlot, but the estate chooses to declassify what they term as a young vine parcel, planted between 1992 and 2006, to this village cuvée. Chardonnay was planted on the sectors of limestone of the Clos. Light straw in colour, with notes of rose petal and jasmine. Harmonious with a gentle viscosity. Rounded, graceful and fresh.

    Cask sample. Light earthiness on the nose. But fresh greenery underneath and excellent acidity. A fine white Nuits, even if it's a little more stolid than most Côte de Beaune whites. Drink 2022 – 2026

    Score: 87-90

    Fined and racked to tank, to bottle in January. Surprisingly deep lemon yellow, a little banana and persimmon. Significant power here, white fruit but a little heat behind, some acidity fortunately. Full but not especially fresh.

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.
