94pts Wine Spectator

Bright, racy and pure, revealing strawberry, cherry, rose and sandalwood aromas and flavors. This red displays delicacy, with fine harmony and a long, spice- and mineral-tinged finish. Best from 2021 through 2035.

 

91-93pts Vinous

The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Clos de l’Arlot 1er Cru has quite a strict, mineral-driven bouquet with some lovely sous-bois scents derived from the 40% whole bunch fruit. The 50% new oak is also nicely integrated here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, and quite saline and compact at the moment. It needs a little more substance toward the finish, although that may well manifest during the remainder of the barrel maturation. Very fine.

Winemaker Notes

The nose is direct and precise with notes of red fruit, flowers and fennel. The very aromatic and delicate palate presents supple tannins revealing a structured texture. The wine is more powerful than in previous years, with an incredible depth that makes it supremely delicious.
