Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos de l'Arlot Rouge, 2007, Domaine De L'Arlot
An overtly floral nose of rose petal and violet hints adds nuance to the otherwise high-toned red pinot fruit that is in perfect keeping with the detailed, precise and almost nervous middle weight flavors brimming with an intense minerality and truly lovely balance.
This is almost delicate in its delivery though there is enough underlying grip to suggest 6 to 8 years of upside. A classic Clos de l'Arlot and worth a look.
