2012 De L'Arlot

N.S.G. "Clos des Forets

 Only 1 left!


Tasting note: A distinctly cool nose of purple fruit, earth and a hint of the sauvage leads to silky, intense and impressively refined medium weight flavors where the shaping tannins are unusually fine grained, all wrapped in a robust and tautly muscular finish. While this has not completely shed its typical Nuits character, the 2012 version is certainly more polished than usual. In sum, this is really quite good and worth your attention. Drink 2022+
Burghound 90-93 pts. Outstanding
The 2012 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Clos des Forets Saint Georges comes from vertically planted vines that are perpendicular to the RN74. Different geological expressions up the slope are blended into three different cuvees, which are then assembled prior to bottling. It has an attractive nose of wild strawberry and mulberry fruit intermixed with forest floor scents: well-defined with subtle use of both oak and whole bunches. The palate is medium-bodied with a sorbet-like freshness on the entry. This is full of energy and vitality, the acidity well-judged with admirable weight and presence on the masculine finish that suggests this will age very well. Superb.
