The Style of the Wine

This wine is recognizable by its golden, brilliant and clear colour. The pleasure starts with the very fine nose which evokes white flowers and exotic fruit, honey and vanilla. It carries on in the mouth where one discovers a full, generous wine whose roundness, suppleness and freshness express the very notion of harmony. It concludes on a mineral note which sharpens its complexity.

The Terroir

The terroir of the Clos de l'Arlot blanc is rugged and rocky. The hillsides are so steep that all work on the vines, often performed with the help of machinery, is done by hand here. Such painstaking work is necessary and worthwile for this vineyard of unique quality and character.

- The taste of tradition: for the Clos de l'Arlot blanc, aromas and flavours are extracted in the most natural way. It is fermented at low temperature to capture the best of the fruit character of the grapes and express the radiance of the great Chardonnay. - The particularly striking and seductive thing about this exceptional white wine is its tension, the rich contrast between the firmness and opulence. It perfectly illustrates the idea of a classic burgundy, made without any concession to fashion. It modulates the fruit and makes it play on the length of the mouth, to animate its originality and impose its seductiveness. - The grapes which come from young vines are vinified separately and make up a cuvée labelled La Gerbotte, Nuits Saint Georges Blanc.

The Weather

A particularly chaotic and contrasting year, which leaves a memory of a snowy winter, a wet spring, and a summer which started off with a heatwave and ended up cold and damp, followed by mixed weather in September.

The Harvest

Sunny weather when the whites were picked on September 18th and 19th and gloomier weather when the reds were picked from September 23rd to 28th, with ripeness which took a long time to become apparent.

The Grapes

Very low yields. Strict sorting of the grapes during picking and in the winery meant that the grapes were of high quality. Yields were low despite the rain.
