The 2008 Nuits St. Georges Clos des Forets St.-Georges is a gorgeous wine. Here the freshness of the vintage plays off the warmth of the site nicely. The 2008 is naturally less extroverted than the 2009 tasted alongside it, but the wine nevertheless impresses for its cool, mineral-laced fruit and fabulous length. This is a fairly subtle wine that isn’t quite ready to show all of its cards. Domaine de L’Arlot has been an organic estate for ten years. In 2009 Olivier Leriche began harvesting on September 7 and ended around the 15th. The wines were vinified with a higher than normal percentage of whole clusters and spent 20-25 days on the skins. I tasted most of the 2009s from barrel. Leriche planned to bottle the wines with no fining or filtration. I also tasted a handful of 2008s. The 2008s were bottled between April and July 2010 (a bit on the late side because of the lengthy malos) with no fining or filtration. May 2011, www.erobertparker.com, Drink: 2018-2028
Organic since 2000 and biodynamic since 2003, the vineyards of Domaine de l'Arlot is rather unusually – for Burgundy – owned by insurance giant AXA. Located two km south of Nuits St. Georges, the domain covers around 14 hectares and was successfully set up by Lise Judet and Jean-Pierre De Smet, who worked under the great Jacques Seysses of Domaine Dujac before this project. Within the range of wines can be found rare white Nuits St. Georges, Romanée Saint Vivant and Vosne Romanée les Suchots. Wines are aged in about one third new wood and bottled unfiltered at 16-18 months for 1er crus. Christian Seely of AXA wines is the managing director and the reigns have since passed to Jacques Devauges to lead as technical director
