    Palish red. Captivating aromas of strawberry, raspberry, brown spices, rust and rose petal. Silky on entry, then shapely and energetic, boasting excellent inner-mouth tension to the saline red berry, spice and orange peel flavors. This, too, spreads out nicely to saturate the palate, with the fine-grained tannins in perfect balance with the wine's fruit. A lovely Clos de la Roche in the making.

    Tasted blind at the annual |Burgfest| tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru from Domaine Arlaud PAre & Fils was showing a slight reduction on the nose but there appears to be plenty of fruit underneath

  • 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.
