Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru “Cuvée Mont des Oiseaux” 2017, Domaine de l’Arlot
Tasted at the Corney & Barrow Burgundy 2017 en primeur tasting this NSG 1er Cru exhibits many of the unique pinot noir characteristics of the vintage. This wine has an immediately open nose of floral notes and red currant jelly. It is very pretty. Charming, juicy and with a saline finish. This is not Nuits St. Georges as we know it. At £46.67 per bottle in bond there are more thrillingly juicy, ripe and dare I say good value wines to be purchased from the 2017 vintage. For instance, the Volnay 1er Cru from Domaine Glantenay.
