Domaine de L'Arlot

Domaine de L'Arlot, located in Premeaux-Prissey, just south of Nuits-St.-Georges, Burgundy, was started in 1987 by AXA, the French insurance company. The original property consisted of three monopoles: Clos de l’Arlot; Clos du Chapeau in Comblanchien; and Clos des Forets St. Georges. In the early 1990s the domaine added parcels in Romanee-St- Vivant and Vosne-Romanee Les Suchots. The domaine today includes 34 acres and Olivier Leriche is winemaker. Wines produced include Grand Cru Romanee-St.-Vivant, and Premier Crus in Vosne-Romanee.

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.
