    April 5, 2014 - Not much on nose, soft textured, deep and intriguing, there's a very slight stem pong, but the overriding sense is sappiness. Very attractive, but quiet

    January 31, 2014 - Has some sandalwood spice to the nose along with sweet red fruit, smoked meats and some floral stem action. It is velvety in the mouth with good depth of flavour and plenty of spice. There is just a touch of bitterness from the whole bunch on the finish.

    August 5, 2013 - Very nice complex nose of red dried cherry fruit, stems, floral elements. Excellent mid palate lift and balance. Great acidity that carries through on a lovely finish.tannins not obtrusive. Better than the 02 Dujac MSD served alongside IMO.

    July 15, 2013 - Dark Garnet, Slightly Browning. Primary and robust, even disjointed, with further need of age to integrate. Oak is a little obtrusive when married with the whole bunch vinous character. Some sweet confection fruit showing through mid-palate and on the finish nicely tannic, dry and pure.

    May 19, 2013 - Started with a little funkiness that blew off (reduction?) leading to a nice nose of sweet red fruit and a little dried cherry. The palate showed dried fruits and a pruniness, some earth and then a wall of slightly drying tannins. Good acid and med finish though really not sure this wine will be able to resolve the tannins before losing the fruit it still has. Probably best to drink these now if you have them and maybe hold one back as an experiment.

    (l'Arlot Nuits St.Georges Clos des Fôrets St.Georges) Medium, medium-plus colour. Dark and deep in character with a faintly spicy edge. There is a higher level of tannin, though velvety, and extra dimensions of dark fruit on the palate. Well balanced, though certainly more masculine in style. Good length and interesting aspect to the acidity as it seems to 'melt' the tannins in the finish - a very interesting and impressive wine.

    (l'Arlot Nuits St.Georges Clos des Fôrets St.Georges) Medium-plus colour. The nose has Arlot's characteristic smokiness but is covered with toasty oak. The oak dissipates to leave higher toned red fruit (again a strawberry complexion) than the last wine. Immediately fatter and denser though the acidity carries the wine well giving excellent balance. The tannins are a little more forward still though again with nice mouthfeel. This wine will need even longer than its baby brother, personally I wouldn't touch another for at least 5-8 years when it will be a very good wine.
