2014 De L'Arlot

N.S.G. "Clos des Forets

 Only 2 left!


The 2014 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Clos des Fôrets St Georges, which I sampled from several barrels, was matured in 50% new oak. It has a refined nose, backward at first, but opening in the glass: blackcurrant mixed with raspberry and cold stone scents, and just a touch of undergrowth in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and crisp acidity, just a scintilla of bitter cherry. I like the focus here, the symmetry and whilst it does not possess the sustain nor the length of a top vintage, there is more than sufficient freshness and tension. Give it 3-4 years in bottle.
