Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Petit Plets, 2012, Domaine De L'Arlot

Note: from young vine Clos-de-Forêts St. Georges fruit planted in 1986 and thereafter

A restrained and notably cool nose blends notes of plum, dark cherry and earth. There is good volume and solid concentration to the round and suave middle weight flavors that are supported by phenolically mature tannins, all wrapped in a slightly rustic if mouth coating finish that offers very good if not truly special complexity and persistence.

Score: 89
