Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos de l'Arlot Domaine de l'Arlot Information
About the domain
Domaine Arlot takes its name from one of its parcels of land: the Clos de l'Arlot (4 hectare monopole). The domaine also holds a second prestigious premier cru, also as a monopole, the Clos des Forêts Saint Georges, as well as grand cru vines in Romanée-Saint-Vivant. It has been owned by the AXA Millésimes Group since 1987 and is currently 14 hectares in size. The domaine has been working organically since 2000 and with biodynamics since 2003. Its white wines are highly renowned, especially those from the Clos de l'Arlot and Clos des Forêts Saint Georges and its red wines are sublime with superbly vinified grapes in the full harvest. Previously managed by the remarkable Jacques Devauges, vinification has been led since 2014 by Geraldine Godot, from Maison Alex Gambal.
About the cuvée
Clos de l'Arlot is a very fine white wine characterised by its balance between tension and a certain opulence. The bouquet delivers very intense aromas of white and yellow fruit, citrus (lemon, grapefruit), verbena flavours and élevage notes. The same fruitiness and verbena/linden aromas are found in the mouth, along with volume, tension and a beautiful finish. This wine pairs extremely well with fish in sauce and shellfish.
