It must be the season! Equivalent 2008 prices in brackets for comparison.
DOMAINE DE L’ARLOT 2009 – Nuits-St-Georges
NUITS-SAINT-GEORGES Le Petit Arlot 75cl 42.00 (Swiss Francs) (39.50)
NUITS-SAINT-GEORGES Clos de l’Arlot 75cl 69.50 (68.00)
NUITS-SAINT-GEORGES Clos des Forêts Saint Georges 75cl 69.50 (68.00)
VOSNE-ROMANEE Les Suchots 75cl 99.00 (84.00)
ROMANEE SAINT VIVANT 75cl 299.00 (248.00)
I guess, given the increase, that Les Suchots is also becoming a trophy wine, that or the market won’t stand similar increases for Nuits St.Georges – effectively the Nuits pricing is close to unchanged – but then I thought 08 too expensive. This remans a domaine whose wines I enjoy but only ocasionally as the stems can be a bit aggressive young; 3-5 years down the line and they are lovely though. I note that even when you add the (new) UK 20% tax, the 2009 Nuits are cheaper in the UK…
