Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru "Clos de l'Arlot" 2009, Domaine de l'Arlot
This premier cru vineyard is a monopole of the Domaine de l'Arlot and is located on the southern end of the Nuits-Saint-Georges vineyards close to the quarries of Comblanchien. Produced from 60 year old vines this wine is still very much in its primary phase. Odd aromas like tomato leaves pop up and then disappear to be replaced by a bit of plum and then mint. Another backwards wine which needs time to express itself.
