Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos de l'Arlot Rouge, 2012, Domaine De L'Arlot
Note: a monopole planted between 1945 and 1950; from yields of only 11 hl/ha in 2012
This is notably ripe though not roasted or jammy with its aromas of spice, cassis and black berry liqueur. There is impressive concentration to the opulent and generous medium weight flavors that possess an abundance of palate coating extract that does a fine job of buffering the firm but ripe tannins on the impressively long finish.
