 Domaine L'Arlot 2020 'Clos du Chapeau' Côte de Nuits Villages, Burgundy, France

Farming: Biodynamic

Name of Winemaker/Chef du Cave:  Géraldine Godot

Grape Varieties: Pinot Noir

Soil Type: Named after the hatshaped vineyard the grapes come from in the village of Comblanchien, the 1.6HA lot is a mix of clay and limestone. 

Vinification/Oak Usage: Manual harvest, native yeast fermentation. 

Aging: With 10 to 15 % of new barrels, the Clos du Chapeau never appears too oaky. The new oak is just a spice which brings out the best in the wine. It is bottled after being raised for 14 months.

Tasting Notes: The nose exudes notes of plum and black fruit. Aromas of blackcurrant and pepper emerge on the palate, with great texture. This wine has fine tannins and good length. A wine with character. -Géraldine Godot, Technical Director (July 2022)

History of the Domaine:

Located just south of Nuits Saint Georges, in the village of Prémeaux-Prissey, is Domaine de l’Arlot, a winery formally established in 1987, but with a history that extends over 100 years back to the late 19th century. The domaine is operated out of a 200 year old building found within the Clos de l’Arlot, a 4 hectare walled vineyard created by Jean-Charles Vienot at the end of the 18th century. His son later expanded the estate, and eventually the domaine came to hold two Premier Cru monopoles: Clos des Forets Saint Georges and Clos de l’Arlot, both located within Nuits Saint Georges. Today, these wines are a benchmark expression for the village of Nuits Saint George, showcasing the hearty complexities of Pinot Noir when grown in the limestone-laden Nuiton soils. Exceptionally, although in the heart of Pinot Noir country in Nuits, Domaine de l’Arlot has also come to be a force for Chardonnay production in the village, producing complex, forward and plush Chardonnays that are unlike any other in the Cote de Nuits. The winery’s biodynamic practices and hands-off approach to vinfication allow their fruit to shine, and each vineyard is vinified with respect to the power and finesse of its fruit.
