From the Distributor: “A conversation about Domaine de l’Arlot begins and ends with a conversation about the premier cru monopoles that have come to define the estate: Clos des Forêts Saint Georges and Clos de l’Arlot. Tasting in the cellars of this historic producer provides one of the great terroir lessons in Burgundy. Since Clos des Forêts runs along an entire slope in Nuits St. Georges, each section of the slope is vinified separately. The differences between the richer wine of the clay-heavy lower slope and the high toned juiciness of the pure limestone top of the slope could not be any clearer. It is an experience that speaks not only to the wonders of Burgundian terroir, but also of the privileged location that l’Arlot presides over.”
This is quintessential 1ere Cru Burgundy: poised, elegant, powerful.
