Tasting Notes

Limited quantitiesJust to recap, this wine was previously labelled Le Petit Arlot, and is drawn from the vines at the very top of Clos de l’Arlot. This cadastre has a particular terroir: steeper, with a blend of white and pink limestone and chalky clay soils (in fact, the terroir here resembles the Gerbotte site). The vines here ripen a few days earlier than their counterparts in the more clay-rich soils of the bottom part of the Clos.

With the vines here now old enough to produce wines of Premier Cru stature (in fairness it has probably done so for many years now), from 2015 l’Arlot made the decision to elevate the fruit from these vines to their rightful status. Again, it’s a superb example of this wine. Great class and Vosne-like spice.  - Importer 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 1980s 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 élevage. 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.

2014 was Jacques Devauges's last year as winemaker, (before he was headhunted by the great Sylvain Pitiot for the role of Clos du Tart's new régisseur), and Géraldine Godot's first. The pair worked together at harvest time, with Géraldine assuming control over the élevage prior to bottling. To her credit, Godot refuses to accept any plaudits for the quality of Arlot's '14 wines. The plaudits can wait. Thanks to the brilliance of Arlot's 2015s there will be plenty of those coming Godot's way. The energy and dynamism Géraldine Godot is bringing to Domaine de l'Arlot is palpable. Whilst retaining the core values of l'Arlot, with next year's release we are going to see a number of changes to the line-up.
