Domaine De l’Arlot – Benchmark Biodynamic Burgundy

Domaine de l'Arlot, with its hillside vineyards and 19th-century gardens, has what many consider to be the most beautiful estate in Burgundy. Since the late 1980s, this producer has also been responsible for some of the prettiest red Burgundies going around. Domaine de l’Arlot (covering an area of 14 hectares) is mostly located in Nuits Saint Georges with two ‘Premier Cru Monopole’, Clos de l’Arlot and Clos des Forêts Saint Georges.

The 'monopole' defines a unit of land, a terroir which has been perfectly defined for centuries and which is owned by a single proprietor. With the constant division of vineyards in Burgundy over the centuries, it is quite an unusual occurrence.


The perfume, silkiness and flickering clarity of Domaine de l'Arlot ‘s wines are born of their vineyards. This producer brings the finesse of this terroir to the fore with their approach to wine growing and élevage. Biodynamic farming, perfect, well-sorted fruit, gentle extraction and whole bunch use, all play their part. Every step, from vineyard to bottle, is tailored to underline purity and finesse.
