(30% vendange entier): Medium bright red with a palish rim. Enticing, high-pitched aromas of black cherry and flowers. Juicy and tight today, hiding more than it's showing. Like the Combottes, this is not a bodybuilder style or a heavily extracted wine, but there's a solid, sappy core of fruit and plenty of material in reserve to support aging. Finishes with a dusting of ripe tannins, a note of menthol and noteworthy persistence. Cyprien Arlaud thinks this wine will close down in a few years, but it's accessible now. In general, though, he recommends drinking the 2009s on the young side, "as there's no harshness to them."

About This Producer


The dedication of the Arlaud family - father Herve, son Cyprien and daughter Bertille - has substantially improved this domaine each year. Their labor-intensive practices of hand pruning, stringent green harvesting and the use of a horse and plow instead of a tractor have produced the finest wines of the domaine's history.

The wines are textbook expressions of each terroir and are remarkably complex and richly balanced. Look for the domaine to continue to build its strong reputation in vintages ahead.
