Cote de Nuits Villages 2010, Domaine de l'Arlot
This Cote de Nuits Villages is produced from vines in combe which means the terroir is based on a glacial moraine. The domaine started the vendanges on September 23rd which in this day and age of climate change is relatively late. Indeed in 2010, late picking was essential. A potential casualty from 2010 was this rhubarby Morey 2010 from Amiot-Servelle. This Cote de Nuits Villages 2010 is earthy, with cherry aromas. On the palate it is chewy, complex, cassis, black cherry, ripe, good weight. Most likely good value too! Scores 22-24 / 30 for the Cotes de Nuits Villages appellation.
