89-91Vinous / IWC

...dark cherries, hints of peppermint and spice on its quite extravagant nose. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy dark berry fruit, good volume here, fine acidity, hints of white pepper and sage furnishing the composed finish. Fine.

88-90The Wine Advocate

...aromas of ripe berry fruit, cherries, licorice, spices and raw cocoa. Medium to full-bodied...generous core of fruit and powdery structuring tannins...

...both good volume and richness to the relatively opulent flavors that conclude in a youthfully austere and notably better-balanced finale.

16Jancis Robinson

Grainy nose with some refreshment. Attractive combination of ripe fruit and freshness.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, Nuits-St.-Georges, Clos de L'Arlot

Clos de L’Arlot is a 13.4-acre Premier Cru vineyard in the Nuits-Saints-Georges appellation, in Burgundy’s Cote-de-Nuits. It is one of a string of Premier Cru vineyards on the southern edge of the appellation that are in the commune of Premeaux. These vineyards are steep with a grade of about 35%. Clos de L’Arlot is a monopole of Domaine de L’Arlot. Burgundy writer Clive Coates has noted that Clos de L’Arlot is “feminine, the fruit flavors cherry and red, and red currant-like.”


Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
