The 2015 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Mont des Oiseaux is the same vineyard as the Petit Arlot, which is to say that it still comes from the younger vines in Clos de l'Arlot. At the time of my visit, the domaine was verifying with the authorities if they could use the name. This was completely de-stemmed. It has a crisp, well-defined, red cherry and crushed strawberry bouquet with touches of cold limestone. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry with a grainy texture, bright red berry fruit, quite elegant in style with a harmonious and slightly saline finish. This should give plenty of drinking pleasure over the next decade. Neal Martin – The Wine Advocate
(made from young vines planted in 1998 and 1999 on white limestone soil at the top of Clos de l'Arlot): Bright medium red. Alluring perfumed scents of red cherry, raspberry and flowers. Juicy and suave, showing a cranberry freshness complicated by riper hints of torrefaction. Offers lovely verve and definition for the vintage, finishing with suave, dusty tannins and a piquant lingering note of cranberry.
