“The 2015s from Domaine de l’Arlot are quite intense, brimming with energy and they come highly recommended.” - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
Domaine de L'Arlot is not unfamiliar among knowledgeable connoisseurs - a stunning domaine that makes very fine wines from Nuits-St-Georges as well as two amazing, yet fairly-priced wines in Vosne-Romanee - Romanee St Vivant and Vosne-Romanee Les Suchots. We keep buying their wines whenever spotted in the market and it never fails to amaze every buyer and always ask to buy in more after trying their 1st bottle from Domaine de L'Arlot.
Comparatively new, Domaine de L'Arlot was set up in 1987 by insurance company AXA, with strong financial background and management by Jean Pierre de Smet and Jacques Seysses (now the winemaker in Clos de Tart), great wines have consistently been produced year after year. In 2015, the Domaine began to be managed by Geraldine Godot who brings great talent to drive continued success for the Domaine. Top critics like Allen Meadows and Neal Martin both agree that this Domaine's wines are worthy of purchase and to be aged now before their prices skyrocket in the future.
We highly recommend you to consider these compelling top wines from L’Arlot, and you will easily see why these are worth the dollar and some of your cellar space when you look at the critic scores vs Domaine de la Romanee Conti’s Romanee St Vivant and Grands Echezeaux 2015 -
Domaine de L'Arlot Romanee St Vivant 2015
HK$4,650 per bottle
95-97 pts Neal Martin (DRC Romanee St Vivant – 95-97pts Neal Martin)
"The 2015 Romanée-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru also includes 100% whole bunch fruit. I left this 4-5 minutes to really open up. The whole bunch works very well because you cannot detect the stem addition. It is very precise with crystalline red cherry, wild strawberry and limestone, gaining intensity with practically every swirl of the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a keen line of acidity, fresh and vibrant with a touch of spice towards the finish. It is an understated and linear Romanée-Saint-Vivant, very sophisticated and deserving of several years in bottle. Sublime."
Domaine de L'Arlot Vosne Romanee les Suchots 1er Cru 2015
HK$1,350 per bottle
94-96 pts Neal Martin (DRC Grands Echezeaux – 93-95pts Neal Martin)
"The 2015 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots is 100% whole bunch this year, the first time that this has been done and it was raised in two-thirds new oak. Frankly, I was concerned that might be too much, but on the contrary it is actually quite difficult to discern and it allows the mineralité to really shine through, tempering the usual opulence of this vineyard and offering something very focused and energetic. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tension and poise, well-judged acidity, razor-sharp precision with a very long, saline aftertaste. This is one of the best Les Suchots that I have encountered in the 2015 vintage, though it deserves several years in bottle."
Apart from the 2015, we have purchased a case of Vosne Romanee les Suchots 1er Cru 2010 that would be reaching its drinking window very soon -
Domaine de L'Arlot Vosne Romanee les Suchots 1er Cru 2010
HK$1,550 per bottle
94-96 pts Antonio Galloni
"The 2010 Vosne-Romanee Les Suchots is totally mesmerizing from the very first taste. Layers of dark cherries, exotic spice and menthol blossom in the glass as the wine begins to open up. The Suchots impresses for its depth and sheer power. The aromas and flavors continue to build towards a huge crescendo. This is a fascinating wine from Domaine de l’Arlot. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030."
