- Pinot Noir
- Critic Rating
The 2010 Domaine de l’Arlot Clos des Forets Saint-Georges, Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru is a single vineyard wine made by Geraldine Godot, the winemaker at Clos de l’Arlot. The profile of this high-end Pinot Noit are deeply influenced by the soil: because Clos des Forets stretches along an entire slope, each section of the plot is vinified separately to let the characteristic soil’s features shine.
Clos des Forets is a monopole, meaning only Clos de l’Arlot sources the grapes from the vineyard. The domaine itself is one of the most prominent winemakers within the Côte de Nuits and Burgundian scene in general, widely recognised for its gracious and elegant Pinot Noir wines.
The 2010 Domaine de l’Arlot Clos des Forets Saint-Georges, Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru features floral aromas along with flavours of red fruit, green herbs and hints of savoury spice. We like to recommend this particular wine on a relaxed Friday night or, more in general, for any weekday you need – or deserve – a special treat.
