Cellar/Tasting Notes "One of the outstanding successes of the 2009 vintage, this may surpass the superlative 2007. It has a more understated nose at the moment, but is very well defined with honey, white peach, orange peel and crushed stones. The palate has a viscous entry, is very well balanced, very powerful with..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "The Coutet 2009 is a sensational effort from Philippe Baly and his team. It has a fragrant nose of honey, vervain tea, pineapple, frangipane and apple-blossom, well defined if needing a little more vigour at the moment. The palate is vibrant on the entry, informed by touches of apricot and orange..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Bright medium yellow. Ripe peach and nectarine aromas complicated by flowers, dusty brown spices and vanillin oak.

Cellar/Tasting Notes "Elegant acacia blossom, lemon zest, stone and pain grille suffused nose... excellent intensity... lovely depth on the mouth coating and impressively persistent finish... a wine of class and grace."
Cellar/Tasting Notes Domaine de l'Arlot's Clos l'Arlot is refined expression of what Chardonnay can produce in Nuits-Saint-Georges in 2010. Floral notes with hints of honey and citrus. On the palate -- long and nuanced. Beautiful now and will develop over time.
