Winemaker Notes

This wine reveals a precise bouquet of exquisite aromas of wild strawberries, cranberries, wild berries and a hint of graphite. Discreet at first, it reveals itself when it is aired in the glass. The palate is modestly full-bodied with fine tannins, offering a lively and linear sensation, with delicate depth. Notes of red fruits on the nose give way to black fruits on the palate, followed by a slight hint of graphite. Beautifully energetic, robust and elegant, this rich vintage promises to age well for several decades.

Critical Acclaim

V 93
Vinous
The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Clos des Forêts Saint-Georges is completely de-stemmed, unlike the Clos de l’Arlot, partly because of the analysis that suggested it should include stems. It has a very pure bouquet, a little more opulent than the Clos de l’Arlot, featuring black cherry, blueberry and light floral scents. The smooth, rounded palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and denser than the Clos de l’Arlot, but then again, maybe the Clos de l’Arlot has more personality.
Barrel Sample: 91-93

Wine Spectator
This shows some breadth and an underlying earthiness to the black cherry, iron and leafy tobacco flavors. The tannins are dense, yet well-integrated. Persistent and juicy on the spicy finish. Best from 2022 through 2036.

Not surprisingly, the aromatic profile is quite similar to that of the 1er. There is more size, weight and muscle to the denser middle weight plus flavors that culminate in a markedly serious, mouth coating and sneaky long finish. This is very clearly built to age but it's not overly austere; with that said, this is clearly going to require extended patience.
Barrel Sample: 90-92

Domaine de l'Arlot, France
Domaine de l'Arlot Geraldine Godot, Owner and Winemaker Winery Image

Domaine de L'Arlot is one of the seminal properties in Nuits St. Georges. The domaine was co-owned by Jean-Pierre de Smet, who spent eight years alongside Jacques Seysses of Domaine Dujac before taking over L’Arlot in 1986. Today, the domaine consists of 14 hectares planted to mostly Pinot Noir, with 5% devoted to Chardonnay for their ultra-rare white wines. The oldest vines are 70+ years old, with the average age close to 50. While the estate’s core is in the monopoles of Clos des Forêts Saint Georges and Clos de l’Arlot, the domaine also consists of two parcels in the village of Vosne-Romanée that were added in 1991. The first is a plot in the Grand Cru Romanée Saint-Vivant that sits in the corner of the appellation, spilling into La Tâche on one side and Romanée-Conti on the other. The second is a prime parcel of Vosne Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots that sits on the border of Romanée Saint-Vivant. The addition of these incredibly placed sites only served to further cement the iconic status of the domaine.

In 2015 the very talented Geraldine Godot took over the domaine. While retaining the core values of l’Arlot, including biodynamic farming, Geraldine has brought her own style to this historic estate, with extraction kept to a minimum, and the wines seeing less new oak than in the past. All of this is done to preserve the gorgeous fruit from their cherished vineyards. With Geraldine’s inspired leadership, Domaine de l’Arlot is committed to maintaining their classic, elegant style of terroir driven wines in hopes of providing the sort of divine pleasure only classic Burgundy delivers.

Nuits-St-Georges Wine

Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

View all products

Inhabiting the bottom end of the northern half of the Côte d’Or, Nuits-St-Georges is a busy, market-driven town and home to many of Burgundy’s negociants. It is also the largest town in the Côte d’Or after Beaune and contributes "nuits" to the name of Côte de Nuits (i.e., the northern half of the Côte d’Or).

The appellation itself is divided into two parts, where in the north it directly borders Vosne-Romanée, the southerly end is the commune of Prémeaux. There are no Grands Crus in this village, though it does have a large number of Premiers Crus.

The best Nuits-St-Georges Pinot Noir are layered with cherry, plum, underbrush and sandalwood. The fruit is sweet, the wine energetic, and the finish long and lush.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
