Domaine de l’Arlot Clos des Forets 2012
A classic, and rightly so. Fruit and floral notes on the nose with spicy vanilla on the palate and an elegant finish. Rich, round and perfectly balanced, this is red Burgundy at its absolute best.
AOP Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er cru
What we say
Made exclusively from grapes grown within the tiny Clos des Forets premier cru vineyard, this is a beautifully sophisticated expression of the Pinot Noir grape. The wine reaches its prime at about 10-15 years of age when the equilibrium between its complex dark fruits and mature leather and tobacco flavours is at its most exquisite.
What they say
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, depending on the vintage, 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.
