Domaine de l’Arlot owns just over one acre of this grand cru vineyard in Vosne-Romanée. This 2005 shows intense, complex fruits and tannins, both finely intertwined. There is power, but the strawberry flavors are just as important, flattering the palate.
A delicious, flowery, aromatic wine. The flavors float around the firm core of fine tannins, plum skin and fig flavors, combining with acidity and leaving an impression of delicacy, yet also great aging potential.
Black cherry juice vies with a dense structure in this powerful wine. It has layers of tannins and sweetness. This is a firm, solid wine packed inside velvet. Age for 10 years and more.
A superpowerful wine packed with structure and ripe fruit. It also has elegance and dense concentrated flavors. Its strange name—”four days”— is derived from the fact that it was possible for four workers to harvest the vineyard’s fruit in a single day. Imported by Louis Latour.
For a Grand Cru from Vosne-Romanée, this is a wine on the light side, its tannins soft and dominated by new-wood flavors. That said, it is still a fine wine, packed with ripe fruit and fresh acidity. The structure floats over the fruit; a few months and it may fatten out.
Shows plenty of bright raspberry fruit on the nose, but seems a bit sinewy and tannic in the mouth. The aromas are pretty and there is some spicy red fruit on the palate, but this wine could use a little more flesh to balance its toughness.
