Cyprien Arlaud Vosne-Romanée 2017
Pinot Noir｜Côte de Nuits, Burgundy
When it comes to natural Burgundy, the Arlaud family is one of the most respected names; they lay claim to being the first organic and biodynamic-certified domaine in Morey-Saint-Denis.
Theirs are elegant, approachable yet incredibly long-lived Burgundy. This Vosne-Romanée hails from a site called Aux Communes, adjacent to the famous, pricey 1er Cru Clos des Reas – million-dollar terroir, literally. The 2017 vintage is one of beauty and generosity, showing all the more in this gem, with perfumed cherry, exotic spice, sandalwood, forest floor and wild raspberry. The wines are fermented naturally in cement tank and oak is used judiciously restricted, preserving all the natural fragrance and delicacy of the Pinot.
This beauty will lay down comfortably for another decade, no doubt, and will reward opening today – just be sure to decant for a couple hours for the full bouquet to unfurl. Cheers!
