  • Goedhuis, December 2022

    What was formerly known as Petit Arlot, the vines in this parcel are now over 25 years old and the domaine has created a new label reflecting its Premier Cru status: Mont des Oiseaux, named after the old track which overlooks the quarry of the Clos. It has its own location at the top of the Arlot Clos on limestone soil, so is a very different style to the marl-based Clos wine. A little backward on the nose, however this restraint diminishes on the palate. Flavours of red cherry and smooth berry fruits, with hints of dark cocoa and textured chewy tannins on finish. Lots of potential.

  • Neal Martin, January 2023, Score: 89-91

    The 2021 Nuits Saint-Georges Mont des Oiseaux 1er Cru, which comes from white limestone soils at the top of Clos de l'Arlot, was showing some reduction on the nose. The palate is more readable, fleshy with grainy tannins that frame the slightly peppery red fruit. Cohesive and gentle in terms of grip on the finish, this should drink well for the next decade. Drink 2024-2035.

  • Jasper Morris MW, November 2022, Score: 88-90

    Fresh crimson purple. There is a light toast on the nose but no significant reduction. A sweeter thicker textured style of wine, with a clean red fruit, a touch or orange rind, middling acidity and fair persistence. Drink from 2025-2028.

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.
