Domaine De L'Arlot Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos Des Forets Saint Georges 2016
Under the law of Hong Kong, intoxicating liquor must not be sold or supplied to a minor in the course of business.
With its well-defined character, this wine perfectly illustrates the identity of the Nuits Saint Georges vineyard. Complex aromas of blackcurrant mingled with spicy blackberry are revealed on the nose with darker notes of liquorice and leather. The well-built mouth affirms itself with density and strength around a tight structure with rich, well-wrapped tannins. It becomes increasingly seductive over time, which comes from the elegance, intensity and purity of the fruit. Silky tannins coat the palate, revealing just the right balance between freshness and maturity. This is a vintage that will show its delicate character in its youth, while also having good ageing potential.
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. Located in Nuits St-Georges, the domaine consists of 14 hectares planted to mostly Pinot Noir, where the oldest vines are 70+ years old. Since 2015, the very talented Geraldine Godot took over the domaine. While retaining the core values of l’Arlot, including biodynamic farming, Geraldine has brought her own style to this historic estate, with extraction kept to a minimum, and the wines seeing less new oak than in the past.
