Nuits-St.-Georges Premier Cru Clos des Forêts Saint-Georges Monopole 2017
Nuits-St.-Georges Premier Cru Clos des Forêts Saint-Georges Monopole 2017 is a fine wine produced by Domaine De l'Arlot in Burgundy. The Pinot Noir grapes come from the Nuits Saint Georges vineyard which includes an area of 7.2 hectares in a very favorable position and a unique terroir that gives birth to very long-lived wines . Moreover, monopole means that this vineyard is the absolute property of the domaine. Bright and intense ruby red in color, this wine offers to the nose a complex bouquet of black currant, blackberry and spices, with tertiary notes of leather and licorice. The structured and powerful sip, endowed with a strong tannin, makes us understand the great aging potential of this wine, which, despite being elegant now, will be able to transform itself and make the most of its harmony with aging.
