The Clos de L'Arlot also produces about 3,000 bottles of a rare white Nuits St. Georges. The Nuits St. George AC is made from the young Clos des Forets vines, producing about 3,000 bottles. The Cote de Nuits Villages Clos du Chapeau is only about 3 hectares. In 1991, the Domaine added a parcel of Romanee Saint Vivant to its holdings. The vines are located just in front of Romanee Conti.

Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Nuits St. Georges Clos des Forets St.-Georges is striking. Freshly cut flowers, spices and red berries are some of the many notes that are woven together. Though deceptively understated at first, the Forets St-Georges has plenty of underlying Nuits structure. A crystalline, totally pure finish laced with rose petals, spices and licorice wraps around the palate in stunning style. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030.
BurghoundThis is also strongly reduced yet like the Clos de l'Arlot, the floral nuances are also evident through the reduction. This is quite serious, even brooding with rich, dense and powerful medium weight plus flavors that possess more prominent tannins and outstanding length on the mouth coating, dusty, austere and impressively long finish. This will require plenty of cellar time to arrive at its apogee but should be well worth the wait. 91-93
