2022 Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Clos de l'Arlot Blanc, Domaine de l'Arlot

2022 Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Clos de l'Arlot Blanc, Domaine de l'Arlot

This is one of few prestigious whites of the Côte de Nuits, and comes from one of the estate’s two monopole vineyards. In 2022 all the younger vines that had previously gone into La Gerbotte, have been incorporated into the senior cuvée. It is easily one of the best white wines you’ll find in the Côte de Nuits, showing bright, elegant fruit, and an appetising bitterness. It’s all really coming together for this cuvée.

Tasting notes

The 2022 Nuits Saint-Georges Blanc Clos de l'Arlot 1er Cru was taken from tank on the lees before filtration and fining. Aged in 25% new oak, it offers pretty apple blossom, gooseberry and persimmon scents that gradually unfold, though never completely let loose. The palate is well-balanced, with noticeable weight and heft on the entry. This is a concentrated white Burgundy, yet Géraldine Godot manages to retain sufficient tension and poise, elongating the finish. Apparently, this bottle had opened up considerably since being uncorked the previous day. Touch of ginger on the aftertaste. Punchy!

This cuvée now covers all the plots, as La Gerbotte is included in Arlot, given that the vines are now 30 year old after all. Racked to tank but neither fined nor filtered yet. 25% new wood just features lightly on the nose, rather more evident on the palate. There is adequate concentration of white fruit, with a saline apple finish. The oak needs to calm down, as I am sure it will. Drink from 2027-2031. Tasted: October 2023.
