Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Petits Plets, 2006, Domaine De L'Arlot
Note: from young vine Clos-de-Forêts St. Georges fruit planted in 1986 and after
Here the aromatic profile is slightly riper and more deeply pitched with more obvious earth influence to the attractive blend of red, black and violet aromas that merge into rich, full, sweet and generous flavors that are both supple and appealingly textured, particularly on the vibrant and relatively powerful finish.
I like the precision and purity though this doesn't lack for character as there is an underlying robustness.
A quality villages.
