    There are but three barrels of the Arlaud 2005 Bonnes Mares which displays impressive aromatic and palate concentration of black and red raspberry fruit, pungent candied citrus rind and brown spices, and high-toned herbal notes, but also considerable raw tannin and obvious influence of its new barrels (which the Clos St.-Denis did not betray). The finish, while certainly long, somewhat awkwardly juxtaposes hints of caramel against tart rhubarb and mingles spices with a certain amount of heat. Time might bring this rather unruly, high-strung wine to heel.

  • 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.
