Tasting Notes

The 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos de l'Arlot is showing beautifully in bottle, wafting from the glass with aromas of raspberries, redcurrant, violets and spices that are delicately framed by a discrete touch of new oak. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, exquisitely satiny and enveloping, with racy acids, melting tannins and impressive intensity and persistence. In the context of the vintage, this is both impressively concentrated and notably vibrant, though these qualities are rendered in a supremely elegant format.

William Kelley, Wine Advocate, January 2020

The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Clos de l’Arlot 1er Cru has quite a strict, mineral-driven bouquet with some lovely sous-bois scents derived from the 40% whole bunch fruit. The 50% new oak is also nicely integrated here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, and quite saline and compact at the moment. It needs a little more substance toward the finish, although that may well manifest during the remainder of the barrel maturation. Very fine.
