Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Petits Plets, 2009, Domaine De L'Arlot
Note: from young vine Clos-de-Forêts St. Georges fruit planted in 1986 and after
A subtle touch of wood frames slightly more aromatically complex aromas of red berry fruit plus subtle earth and sauvage hints, both of which carry over to the textured and more densely concentrated flavors that retain a fine sense of detail on the serious, delicious and lingering finish.
This mouth coating effort overtly confirms the presence of stems and in this case, the overall impression is once more of a classically rustic Nuits.
