Description

Opulent and complex, with aromas and flavors of macerated cherry, plum, rose hip and sweet spices wrapped in a smooth texture, all offset by dense yet civilized tannins, converging on the long, vibrant finish. Best from 2021 through 2042. - WS93

Arlaud noted that what I tasted may not be the final blend as a young vines cuvée which was included in my sample, may be eliminated and either declassified or sold. A background touch of wood can be found on the spicy and distinctly floral-suffused nose that is primarily composed of red currant and humus elements. I very much like the sense of underlying tension to the well-delineated if lighter flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the mildly dry and compact finish that comes up somewhat short. Eliminating the young vines would probably improve this. - BH89~91

The Charmes-Chambertin sounds right the wine is accessible and charming even in it’s youth. The tannins are light and delicate. The wine is supple and with a very nice evolution potential.- Winemaker's Notes

The Winery

Domaine Arlaud was created in 1942 with the marriage of Joseph Arlaud, a man from Ardèche, and Renée Amiot, a woman from a family with deep roots in the Burgundian wine culture. The bride’s dowry brought parcels in excellent vineyards, which Joseph supplemented by shrewd acquisitions, beginning in 1949. In 1966, the family acquired a 14th Century historical building in which to age their wines. The cellar is displayed on their wine labels.

Their son Hervé took over in 1983 and, with his wife Brigitte, continued to increase the estate. Their children gradually joined them and worked together from 2004 to 2012.

In 2003, the family began moving operations to a new, modern facility in Morey Saint Denis. The 14th Century cellar, located in the heart of Nuits Saint Georges is still used for the Estate’s wine library and for special tastings. It is an authentic and unique place to celebrate three generations of Burgundian hospitality.

In 2013 Cyprien Arlaud assumed full control over management of the Family estate. By then, it had grown to 15 hectares, consisting of 19 separate Appellation Controlled vineyard sites, with choice plots in 4 grand Crus: Clos de la Roche, Clos Saint Denis, Charmes Chambertin, and Bonnes Mares.
