Domaine De L'Arlot Côte De Nuits Villages Clos Du Chapeau 2014

£32.50

Domaine De L'Arlot Côte De Nuits Villages Clos Du Chapeau 2014 is a vibrant red black to the rim with lovely sappy Pinot Noir fruit on the nose, juicy and crunchy. Very attractive, leading to a palate of leafy red fruits and a touch of earthiness, pure and racy, again deliciously crunchy and fresh with a hint of caramel behind. Deceptively approachable already.

Located in the village of Comblanchien, Clos Du Chapeau is a hat-shaped plot which is where its name comes from. The vines cover a surface of 1.6 hectares on soil that is a mixture of clay and limestone, ideal for revealing the pleasures of the Pinot Noir. Yields are limited to 35 hectolitres per hectare.

Thanks to a gentle élevage using just 10 to 15% of new barrels, the Clos Du Chapeau never appears too oaky. The new oak is just a spice that brings out the best in the wine. It is bottled after 14 months in barrel.
