2021 Domaine Arlaud “Roncevie” Bourgogne Rouge, Burgundy

The history of Domaine Arlaud started during World War II, when Joseph Arlaud (originally from Ardèche) met and fell in love with Renée Amiot, who came from a historic Burgundian family. Part of the couple’s wedding gifts were parcels of land in the Côtes de Nuits, around the top crus of Morey St. Denis and Gevrey-Chambertin. And so, Domaine Arlaud was born. Joseph’s son, Hervé Arlaud, took over the estate in 1982 and expanded the domaine with more purchases of prime vineyards, mostly in their home village of Morey St. Denis. Today, the star of the show is Hevré’s son Cyprien, who in the last ten years, has come into his own as one of the most exciting growers in all of France.

Why do we like it? 

Arlaud's Roncevie Bourgogne is an exceptional Burgundian secret. Although Gevrey-Chambertin is the origin, the label doesn't reflect it. It is a wine coming from a vineyard that was classified as Gevrey-Chambertin until 1964. So the Roncevie vineyard is still completely surrounded by Gevery-Chambertin vineyards, and even better than that, as next door is Griottes-Chambertin, a Grand Crus! The wine entices with rose petal, wild raspberry, and underbrush aromatics, while the palate reveals succulent cherry, wild strawberry, and orange rind. Lush fruit meets fine, suave and fine-grained tannins.
