This cuvée first appeared in 2015. It is made from the young(er) vines of the Clos de l’Arlot that had once been labelled ‘Petit Arlot’. It consistently proves its worth as a separate bottling with every new vintage: this is sweet and precise on the nose, with bursting redcurrants, violets, and graphite. The palate shows a wonderfully classical freshness, and some attractive, firm tannins that are expertly married to the red berry volume, making it ready for drinking in just a few years, I expect.
From a clonal selection of vines inside the Clos de l’Arlot and including 40% whole cluster, the 2019 Nuits Saint-Georges Mont des Oiseaux 1er Cru offers fragrant red cherries, orange peel, brown spices and savory notes on the feisty nose. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins that render this a more structured Nuit Saint-Georges. The gritty, tight finish leaves ferrous hints on the aftertaste. Give it 2–3 years in bottle.
