Domaine Arlaud

Domaine Arlaud Pere et Fils is in Morey-St.-Denis, Burgundy. The family-owned domaine now is run by Cyprien Arlaud with help from his younger brother. Domaine Arlaud owns or leases 37 acres which include Grand Cru vineyards in Clos de la Roche, Clos Saint-Denis and Bonnes-Mares. There are also Premier Cru parcels in Morey-Saint-Denis, Gevrey-Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny. Burgundy writers are consistently impressed with the domain’s wines. Clive Coates has written that “I find the Arlaud wines very pure and fragrant. This is a very good address.” Many of the wines are made in small quantities of fewer than 100 cases.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey Chambertin

Côte de Nuits is the northern part of the Côte d’Or and it includes the most famous vineyards and wine communes in the world. There are more Grand Cru appellations in the Côte de Nuits than anywhere else in Burgundy. Of the fourteen communes, or villages in the Côte de Nuits, six produce Grand Cru wines. They are Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St.-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Flagey-Échezeaux and Vosne-Romanee. Some of the vineyards within the Côte de Nuits are tiny, which adds to their prestige. The fabled Grand Cru vineyard La Romanee is barely two square acres. Altogether there are twenty-four Grand Cru vineyards. The region takes its name from the village of Nuits-Saint-Georges. Côtes de Nuits produces mostly reds from Pinot Noir, and the wines have been in demand for centuries. During the 18th century King Louis XIV’s physician recommended that for his health the king only drink wines from Nuits-Saint-Georges. Like most of Burgundy, the soils of the Côte de Nuit can vary greatly from one vineyard to another, though most are a base soil of limestone mixed with clay, gravel and sand.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir

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.
