Located in the village of Comblanchien, this
is a hat-shaped plot- hence the name of the vineyard. The vines are of approximately 45 years old and grow in soils composed of limestone and gravel.
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.
The wine is aged in 45% new French Oak for 14-16 months.
