Importer Note:


This is one of the two great monopole vineyards at the core of this Domaine and it is also one of the great terroirs of Nuits, made clear by its position, so close to Les Saint Georges (the full name of this vineyard is in fact Clos des Forets St-Georges). To our mind, this is Arlot’s finest terroir in Nuits and it consistently makes this producer’s finest wine from that region. Arlot only uses vines planted before 1982 for this bottling. These older, biodynamically-tended vines are vinified in five parcels subject to soil type. As always, it’s the deepest, most powerful Nuits wine in the Arlot stable. Cropped in the region of 17 hl/ha in 2012, this, my friends, is beautiful juice. It’s gorgeous already with layers of black cherry fruit and spicy, resinous, class oak, but given time it will get better and better. There are the trademark mineral tannins (although they are super fine and round in 2012) and the finish goes on and on. Outstanding it is.

Importers Note:

Domaine de l'Arlot, with its hillside vineyards and 19th century gardens, has what many consider to be the most beautiful estate in Burgundy. Since the late 1980’s this producer has also been responsible for some of the prettiest red Burgundies going around. The perfume, silkiness and flickering clarity of these wines is born of the l'Arlot vineyards, and the Prémeaux terroir in general. Prémeaux has always stood apart from the rest of Nuits-Saint-Georges and made wines that are altogether more fine and elegant than those produced further North, around the town itself. L'Arlot brings the finesse of this terroir to the fore with their approach to wine growing and elevage. Biodynamic farming, perfect, well-sorted fruit, gentle extraction and whole-bunch use all play their part. Every step from vineyard to bottle is tailored to underline purity and finesse.

We will receive our first meaningful allocation with the 2011 vintage yet, as those wines were not ready to ship, we managed to persuade régisseur Jacques Devauges to find us a small parcel of the stunning 2010s, which we offer today. If you'd like more information about the Estate or its wines, l'Arlot has a terrific web site at www.arlot.com.
