Domaine Arlaud

About Domaine Arlaud

In 1942, Joseph Arlaud married Renée Amiot and it was the latter who brought deep Burgundian roots and swathes of Grand Cru vines to the partnership. Far from a lucky benefactor of a sizable dowry however, Joseph embarked on a project of extremely shrewd acquisitions over the next few years, growing the family Domaine to hold plots in an enviable four Grands Crus.

 

Culminating in the 1966 acquisition of the 14th Century cellar which adorns their label, Joseph Arlaud passed on one of the greatest Domaines in Burgundy to his diligent children. Today, it is his grandson Cyprien Arlaud who manages the estate, having taken over total control in 2013. Moving winemaking to more modern (and effective!) premises in Morey Saint Denis, the beautiful ancient cellar is now used to store the family reserves and host exclusive tastings.

 

Viniculture

One of the very first estates to recognise the importance of modern, low-intervention and biodynamic practices and their positive impacts on the soil and general terroir of this special region, Domaine Arlaud ceased use of all chemical herbicides as early as 1998 whilst drastically reducing all non-natural treatments at the same time. Slowly but surely over the course of Cyprien’s involvement amongst the vines, Domaine Arlaud was awarded the official status of fully Biodynamic by Veritas in 2014.

 

There is a desperation to convey the personality of both fruit and terroir at Domaine Arlaud, which culminates in extremely gentle and well-judged winemaking. After initial harvest, for example, grapes are sorted and destemmed by hand a further three times! Over recent years, some 30% of bunches are left whole, meaning tannin and structure is imbued naturally into the wine without the need for aggressive extraction and brutal pressing.

Arlaud Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2016 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (91-93)

The 2016 Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru includes 25% whole bunch fruit and is matured in 20% new oak. Cyprien said that the frost affected the old vines in this season. This felt very closed on the nose and unresponsive when given rigorous aeration. The palate has a dense, quite muscular opening, certainly Mazoyères in terms of weight and structure, with a finish that is like a teenager sulking in their bedroom. Yet you know they will come downstairs eventually, in this case, probably in around six to eight years' time. If only all sulky teenagers were like that.

Arlaud Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2017 (6x75cl)

Vinous (91-93)

The 2017 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru comes from single parcel within the highest part of Mazoyères-Chambertin, in the top left-hand corner as you look at the vineyard from the RN74. It has a vivacious floral bouquet of red and black fruit infused with scents of pressed iris petals and violets. The palate is medium-bodied with quite chalky tannin and a fine bead of acidity. This is compact for a Charmes-Chambertin, conveying a sense of strictness toward the finish. It will require five years in bottle just to loosen its tie.

Arlaud Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru Millandes 2019 (6x75cl)

Vinous (90-92)

The 2019 Morey-Saint-Denis Les Millandes 1er Cru came across very backward on the nose, gradually opening with black fruit and black olive/briny aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe black cherry and blueberry fruit, sweet and sorbet-fresh with a high-toned, yet focused finish that lingers long in the mouth. Very promising but it will require 3-4 years in bottle.

Arlaud Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Les Ruchots 2015 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (91-93)

The 2015 Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru Les Ruchots offers tightly wound, black cherry and black plum fruit on the nose that seems a little opaque at the moment. It does not want to give too much away. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, supple in the mouth with more salinity than the other premier crus for the appellation, ergo this would be my pick of the bunch because despite the nose, there is real energy and personality intact. I anticipate it landing towards the upper end of my banded score.
