Tasting Notes

Domaine de l’Arlot also produces a tiny amount of Vosne. This wine, first made in 2008, is crafted from less than a hectare of 1950 vines in Les Suchots, just below the northern slice of Richebourg, known as Les Verrouilles ou Richebourgs. It’s a parcel heavily affected by millerandage, a condition that brings tiny bunches and berries – welcomed by quality minded producers for the intensity it brings. Always a wine that is more about finesse than power, the 2014 is a particularly classy, savoury and, fleet-footed expression from l’Arlot. There is plenty of intense, red cherry and raspberry fruit shot through with salty, iodine-like mineral notes and whole bunch spice. Loads of mouth perfume on the finish. In short, it’s an exceptionally refined Suchots in the making. - 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.
