    A high-toned red berry fruit nose is both elegant and refined as it dissolves into sweet, rich, forward and fleshy flavors that are exceptionally fresh and vibrant, culminating in a supple, textured and energetic finish. This is classy and refined as well as beautifully well balanced. Terrific.

    CS Tired sample, heavy on the nose but convincingly sweet on the palate.

    The 2005 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Combottes (from old vines prone to millerandage) smells of candied cherries and catnip, and offers pungency and grip as well as creaminess of texture on the palate despite having been recently racked and blended. There is a depth of fruit and meaty character that goes beyond the preceding wines, culminating in an exuberant, extroverted finish of spiced cherry, cranberry and herbal concentration. I would check on this again in 5-7 years.

  • 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.
