Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos de l'Arlot Rouge, 2011, Domaine De L'Arlot
Note: a monopole planted between 1945 and 1950
There is again a whiff of the floral and spice character unique to the use of stems present along with fresh and attractively layered plum, earth and violet aromas.
There is excellent richness to the serious, intense and impressively concentrated medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent power and persistence. Note that this will clearly need time in the cellar.
