Domaine de L'Arlot Clos des Forets Saint-Georges, Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru, France 2014

Regular price $ 129.85

Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, Domaine de l'Arlot's 2014 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Clos des Forêts St-Georges is a wine that I remember Geraldine Godot felt I was a bit mean toward when I reviewed it from barrel. You know, she might be right. Here, it is very pure and winsome on the nose: blackberry, raspberry, ripe Satsumas and just a touch of peach—perhaps the most exotic nose among the flight of Nuits-Saint-Georges tasted here but still in keeping with what you expect. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, good substance and density, fresh and lively and perhaps my only quibble being that I would have liked more sustain on the aftertaste.
