Domaine De L'Arlot Nuits Saint Georges Blanc Cuvée La Gerbotte 2016
Domaine De L'Arlot Nuits Saint Georges Blanc Cuvee La Gerbotte 2016 has plenty of tropical notes on the nose: dried mango, peach skin and fresh almond all nicely defined. The palate is medium-bodied with a slight viscosity on the entry, nicely judged acidity with peach and orange peel towards the sensual finish. This will be very seductive.

Once the grapes have been pressed the juice is gravity fed into oak casks, no more than 10% of which are new. The complex transformation then begins: the yeasts which are naturally present in the grape juice transform the sugar into alcohol. By working with indigenous yeasts, fermentation is long (3 months or more) and delicate, but it is one of the important stages which enable Domaine De L'Arlot to best reveal the influence of their terroirs in their wines.
From Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages:
Scented but not savoury. Good fresh acidity and crisp and fun. Big and bold. Quite exciting for the money and I could happily enjoy this at a resto in Nuits. Good Value. 16+ Points
