2005 Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru Les Ruchots, Domaine Arlaud

A vineyard located on the southern (Chambolle) side of the village, on a gentle
slope below Grands Crus Bonnes Mares and Clos de Tart. Les Ruchots is a great
contrast to the Domaine's Les Millandes as it delivers a considerable punch.
Certainly the most backward of the Premier Cru Moreys in the Arlaud cellar but
although the nose is unrevealing at present, the palate is alive with a wealth of
plum and mulberry flavours. Rich and sumptuous with a broad, structured
texture. Certain to develop impressively.

2005 Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru Les Ruchots, Domaine Arlaud
Domaine Arlaud

With the help of horses Nougat and Oka, Domaine Arlaud has been biodynamic since the 2009 vintage. The estate, founded by Joseph in the years after World War II, is now run by siblings Cyprien, Romain and Béatrice, the latter responsible for the equine employees. Whilst the wines have always been impressive, in recent years they have undoubtedly gained in detail and precision, reflecting their cerebral approach to winemaking.
