Grape: Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes: Cherry, Earth, Fig, Strawberry
During World War II, Joseph Arlaud met and fell in love with a Burgundian woman by the name of Renée Amiot. Her family just happened to own a few choice parcels of land in the Côtes de Nuits, which included little vineyards by the names of Clos St. Denis and Bonnes Mares. Part of the couple’s wedding gifts included these grand parcels, paving the way for the founding of Domaine Arlaud.
What’s remarkable is how light this wine can be while delivering satisfying flavor and making an impression that lasts much longer than many fuller-bodied wines. It has velvety texture, soft tannins and bright acidity. Clean flavors of green fig, pale cherry, earth, strawberry, and vanilla caress the palate. Pairs well with duck breast with cherries; wild mushroom tart; and moderately aged French cow's cheeses.
