Domaine De L'Arlot Nuits Saint Georges Blanc Cuvée La Gerbotte 2017
Domaine De L'Arlot Nuits Saint Georges Blanc Cuvee La Gerbotte 2011 develops aromas of citrus and white-fleshed fruit, mingled with aromas of fresh almonds and honey. It has a lively, agile structure in the mouth and reflects the precise, crystalline expression of its terroir. A charming and generous wine with a certain fleshiness counterbalanced by the freshness of this vintage, the overall effect is crisp and delicious.

Once the grapes have been pressed the juice is gravity fed into oak casks, no more than 20% 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.
