1999 l'Arlot, Nuits St.Georges Clos des Fôrets St.GeorgesApr. 2010
The cork shows sign of some seepage. Medium-plus and quite young in colour. The nose is right from l’Arlot’s more gothic implementation of stems – it’s a bit harsh and imposing, not quite what I’d call perfume – there’s also a strong mineral element that veers towards, without ever quite matching, the vintage character of 2004. Aromatically it’s a mixed bag then. In the mouth it’s intense, brooding and shows very good acidity. The tannin only comes a little to the fore in the mid-palate and onwards. It’s also quite long finishing. There’s a little cohesion missing though the individual parts seem good – I don’t think I caught it on a good day…
2002 l'Arlot, Nuits St.Georges 1er CruApr. 2009
Medium, medium-pale colour. Slightly smokey aromas followed by jammy elements. Medium weight and only late appearing tannins. Subtle length makes this wine quite nice.
2004 l'Arlot, Nuits St.Georges Les Petits PletsApr. 2009
A 2004 nose, but not in excess and drowning out the other aromas. Nice flavours of ripe fruit and good acidity. A bit of 2004 flavour on the finish too.
2006 l'Arlot, Nuits St.Georges Clos des Fôrets St.GeorgesApr. 2009
Medium, medium-plus colour. Depth and density on the nose – only very faints stems. A very nice width of ripe fruit aided and abetted by some barrel flavour. Long finishing and very tasty.
1997 l'Arlot, Nuits St.Georges Clos de l'ArlotAug. 2007
Fat, concentrated long and very tropical – not why I buy white Burgundy.
1999 l'Arlot, Nuits St.Georges Clos des Fôrets St.GeorgesDec. 2006
Medium-minus colour. A friendly and complex nose; faint, very understated smoky stems overlayed with mainly black cherry notes. The palate is very well balanced, good acidity and still quite linear, though ripe fruit. The tannins are understated, heading for the background, but still with a last edge of astringency. Overall a very interesting and understated wine where, today, most of the action comes from the lovely aromatics.

2000 l'Arlot, Nuits St.Georges Clos des Fôrets St.GeorgesMar. 2006
Medium ruby-red colour. The nose starts with prominent stalky smoke, slowly becoming more subtle. With time the nose tightens but still shows a faintly cream-tinged red-fruit jam. Nice texture though the acidity is obviously low. The fruit is ripe and sweet, though only a medium length finish. well-made with a lovely nose that currently overshadows the palate.
2003 l'Arlot, Nuits St.Georges Clos des Fôrets St.GeorgesNov. 2005
Medium-plus cherry-red. A little tighter, more linear and darker shaded than the l’Arlot. Lots of action on the palate, bulkier with more tannin, brighter fruit in the background. Again the weight of dry extract on the finish. A good wine, but I still prefer the l’Arlot in this vintage
