90
"(100% destemmed): Good medium red Ripe strawberry and spices on the nose, along with sexy hints of stone fruits A silky, pliant wine with lovely texture and depth, not to mention more material and backbone than the Petit Arlot Flavors of red berries, spices and underbrush are a bit less high-pitched than those of the Petit Arlot but this wine still comes across as fruity and nicely delineated Finishes with nicely ripe tannins"

Domaine de l'Arlot

These old vines are grown on Clos de L'Arlot's vineyard at the bottom end of the 'monopole's' slope.They were planted between 1939 and 1951. Here, the soils are composed of marl mixed in with limestone and gravel. The vineyard has been organically farmed since 2000, and has additionally become bio-dynamic since 2003. The soils have multiple layers consisting of limestone and silt. The grapes are hand picked, twice sorted (once on the vine, then at the crush pad after being picked). All transfers are made via gravity flow. By avoiding the use of pumps, the integrity of the grapes are better preserved. Domaine de l'Arlot takes a very hands off approach to winemaking. This wine is aged in roughly 50% New French Oak for 16 to 18 months.
