Domaine De L'Arlot Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Blanc Clos De L'Arlot 2014

£79.00

"The 2014 Domaine De L'Arlot Nuits St Georges Clos De L'Arlot Blanc has quite a phenolic bouquet, the 20% new oak is nicely integrated with hints of orange zest and freshly sliced mango coming through with aeration, turning quite effervescent. The palate is well balanced with almond and quince on the entry. There is good weight and freshness in situ, controlled and nicely poised towards the finish. 90-92 Points" Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The Clos De L'Arlot vineyard is rugged and rocky, with hillsides so steep that they preclude the use of machinery and all work on the vines has to be done by hand. Such painstaking labour is both necessary and worthwhile, for this is a vineyard of unique quality and character. The combination of old vines and fermentation at low temperature to capture the best of the fruit character of the grapes expresses the radiance of the great Chardonnay from this monopole vineyard.
