Domaine Arlaud Charmes Chambertin 2015
Domaine Arlaud was born from the marriage of Joseph Arlaud from the Ardèche, and Renée Amiot of Burgundy. Her family owned a few choice parcels of land in the Côtes de Nuits, including within Clos St. Denis and Bonnes Mares. Part of the couple’s wedding gifts included these parcels and so was born Domaine Arlaud. Joseph’s son Hervé Arlaud took over the estate in 1982 and expanded the domaine with 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.

Wine SpectatorTangy and chewy in texture, this black cherry-, licorice- and mineral-flavored red is dense and muscular. Holds plenty in reserve and builds to a long finish. Beefy tannins are well-integrated and the fruit goes on and on. Best from 2023 through 2047.
