Nuits-Saint-Georges Clos des Forets de L’Arlot 2012
Pinot Noir from Nuits-Saint-Georges, France – 750ml
Producer Tasting NotesDeep, garnet-red colour. A powerful, wild bouquet. Concentrated and complex, it offers a plethora of rich aromas dominated by spices, fresh red berries and hints of mature rose bush. On the palate, the attack is dominated by the sparkle and freshness of the aromas, while the energy and vigour of the tannins come into their own in the mid-palate, paving the way for a suave, elegant finish. Excellent length of flavour, promises to age very well indeed.
Vineyard NotesIn Burgundy the monopoly (single estate vineyard) defines a unit of land, a terroir which has been perfectly defined for centuries and which is owned by a single proprietor. The Clos des Forêts Saint Georges covers a surface of 7.2 hectares, all in one piece. It is a unique terroir in a privileged location which right from its origin has made one of the greatest Nuits Saint Georges wines. The Clos des Forêts Saint Georges covers the entire geological range of the slopes of Nuits Saint Georges: Ladoix limestone at the bottom, Premeaux limestone in the middle, and white oolite limestone in the upper part, with a marked presence of ochre silt in some places. This Clos is planted entirely to Pinot Noir.
WinemakingTraditional vinification: A manual harvest, minimal vatting, pumping over and punching down without excess to reveal the full aromatic range drawn from this great terroir.
AgeingAgeing lasts on average 15 months in oak barrels, with a maximum of 50% new barrels, and 3 months in vats before bottling.
