A very spicy nose of plum, earth, violet and ripe red and black currants leads to velvet-textured middle weight flavors that possess plenty of dry extract that imparts a sappy quality to the moderately complex but impressively long finish. This has the underlying material to develop well and I have found over the years that age is typically kind to this wine. Well worth considering. Tasted: Jan 15, 2014. Drink: 2021+

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Vosne-Romanee Les Suchots 2011 has a clean, pure and delineated bouquet with ebullient cranberry, raspberry and wild strawberry scents infused with potpourri and wild heather. The palate is fleshy and rounded, generous to the fore with slightly lower acidity that lends it rondeur and approachability. It is missing a little backbone toward the finish, but there is plenty of substance here. What it needs to develop is greater tension and bite. eRobertParker.com.November, 2014

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
