Domaine Arlaud Bourgogne Roncevie 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 AdvocateThe 2015 Bourgogne Roncevie has a perfumed, quite floral blackcurrant and raspberry-scented bouquet. The palate is sweet on the entry with candied fruit; saline in the mouth but it just feels a little abrupt on the finish.
