Burghound Author: Allen Meadows Issue: Issue 33

(from 40+ year old vines) A ripe and deeply pitched nose features a complex blend of red and blue pinot fruit that is almost liqueur-like with lovely violet and earth nuances that continue onto the round, rich, suave and generous flavors that possess good volume and excellent balance if less complexity than one might expect.

International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 143

($70) Good full red. Complex, aromatic nose offers dark cherry, brown spices and dried flowers. At once fleshy and fresh in the mouth, with the sweet cherry and spice flavors spreading out nicely to saturate the palate. Finishes with dusty tannins that arrive late, and a soupcon of eucalyptus. Showing very well today.

Wine Advocate Author: David Schildknecht Issue: 186

From the site immediately east of Clos de Tart and of the sliver of Bonnes Mares in the commune of Morey, Arlaud's 2006 Morey-St.-Denis Les Ruchots represents the latest rendition of what has become almost a flagship wine of this estate. Black cherry, cassis, herbal concentrates, and marine breeze-like salinity and alkalinity make for a highly expressive and distinctive nose. In the mouth, this takes invigoration for berry skins, pungent herbs, and salt, while offering ample, luscious, mouth-coating fresh fruit juiciness and a subtly creamy texture. What's more, it finishes with the sort of buoyancy, energy, and sappy persistence that accrue to some of the best wines of its vintage, as well as with a peppery note that amplifies the sense of invigoration. Plan to enjoy it over the next 7-9 years.

Tasting note: Ruchots is in my estimation the finest of the Morey 1ers and this example will only serve to reinforce that point of view as it again delivers grand cru like quality. A riper and more deeply pitched nose features a complex blend of red and blue pinot fruit with lovely violet and earth nuances that continue onto the round, rich, suave and generous flavors that possess good volume and excellent balance plus fine aging potential. As usual, this and the Combottes are the class of the 1ers chez Arlaud.
