    An airy upper register and very fresh red berry fruit nose complements the rich, round, supple and forward middle weight flavors that are nicely concentrated and absolutely delicious. This is admirably long and while approachable now, it will age on the near perfect balance. A really lovely Chambolle.

    Like its high-toned, somewhat reduced Morey-St.-Denis sibling (which was less cooperative on the day I visited), the Arlauds' 2005 Chambolle-Musigny (from Les Bussieres) leads with tart black cherry and sage aromas. In the mouth, it exhibits juicy, dark berry fruits, florals, and abundant though relatively fine tannin, finishing with excellent clarity of fruit accented by faintly tart, bitter, and darkly meaty-stony notes.

  • 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.
