Domaine de L'Arlot Nuits St Georges Clos des Forets St. Georges 2014


SKU 1930


With its well-defined character, this wine perfectly illustrates the identity of the Nuits Saint Georges vineyard. Complex aromas of blackcurrant mingled with spicy blackberry are revealed on the nose with, depending on the vintage, darker notes of liquorice and leather. The well-built mouth affirms itself with density and strength around a tight structure with rich, well-wrapped tannins. It becomes increasingly seductive over time, which comes from the elegance, intensity and purity of the fruit.

Wine SpectatorSufficient black cherry, black currant and mineral flavors are packed into this taut red, yet this is holding back a little. A solid matrix of tannins offers support, while the acidity keeps this focused and long. Finishes with purity and intensity. Shows fine potential. Best from 2019 through 2033. 100 cases imported

Vinous(45% vendange entier; not yet assembled):Healthy deep red. Terrific spicy, perfumed lift to the complex aromas of dark raspberry, black cherry, peppery herbs, minerals and menthol; distinctly dark for the vintage. Very rich and classically dry, with its impressive thickness leavened by mineral lift and an element of medicinal reserve. Finishes firmly tannic and long; this should be long-lived.
