2019 Domaine Arlaud Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru

$299.00

Meticulous biodynamic farming and a gentle hand in the cellar set Domaine Arlaud apart. Arlaud’s sliver of Gevrey-Chambertin sists at high elevation, just across from Domaine Leroy’s piece of Latricieres, and delivers highly perfumed, elegant wines with that top-quality undergrowth intensity.

Vinous

The 2019 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru is very pure and intense on the nose, a melange of black and blueberry fruit infused with pressed violet petals. The oak here is seamlessly integrated. The palate is opulent on the entry with black plum and boysenberry jam. There is a subtle confit element to this Charmes-Chambertin with grippy tannins on the finish that delivers a subtle bitter/sappy edginess.
