2018 domaine arlot, nuits-saint-georges premier cru, mont oiseaux
Why We're Buying
When people think of Nuits-Saint-Georges, they think of Domaine de L'Arlot. The seminal wine estate has managed the premier cru site for decades, using biodynamic techniques to return as much to the land as it gives. The careful cultivation and classic winemaking practices deliver a pinot noir that provides the one-of-a-kind pleasure that's only possible in Burgundy.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Produced from young vines within the Clos de l'Arlot, the 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Cuvée Mont des Oiseaux reveals scents of cherries, raspberries, warm spices and dark chocolate. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied and youthfully chewy, with chalky tannins that will likely flesh out with further élevage.
