  • MASTER BORGOGNA 2016; 5/10/2016-7/10/2016 (LA MADERNASSA RESORT GUARENE): Subito ridottissimo e sulfureo, quasi non classificabile al naso. Dopo tre ore di decanter l' anatroccolo diventa un cigno ricoperto di frutta calda ed esotica, piuttosto singolare per un 2008. Solita pallida trasparenza dei vini di Arlot e trama sottile, quasi eterea, ma tutto giocato sulla persistenza infinite degli aromi. Manca la pienezza suadente della 2009, ma è ancora più scorrevole e fine. Grande grande vino da bere a secchi.

  • Purchased off the wine list at the Laurentiusstube in Hotel Eurener Hof in Trier for a bargainous € 75. Immediately after opening, the wine was thin and dry, closed and charmless. I decided to hope for the best and to see how the two-thirds left in the bottle would develop over the next 24 hours. I was not disappointed. It remains a light wine, with the typical acidity of the 2008 vintage, and there is a stemmy greenness to it, but it developed a lovely and warm bouquet of estery cherries, sous-bois, spices and red earth, with a silky texture, elegant sweet fruit on the mid palate, and slightly grippy but finely grained tannins; mature finish with cold tea, good nuance and length. Certainly not a great Suchots, but in the context of the 2008 vintage (looking at the other TN's on CT of 2008 Suchots from the various producers, this climat did not fare very well in 2008) and considering the style of wine making, it is a very decent result. But it needs a long decant or a few more years in the cellar.

  • Light in colour, classic light bodied burgundy. Requires some decanting at this stage. Dried herbs, cherry on the nose, light measly side at times. On the palate it has a bit of a green edge ( whole bunch fermentation ?) and is a bit on the underripe side. Pronounced and not always polished acidity. A good wine though but expected more given climat and wine maker. 90

  • This is a beautiful wine, and while not totally ready for prime time, it already shows signature bright red aromatic fruit, a beautiful core of mineral, soil. It was lovely in the mouth and had a refreshing, red fruit swallow, with spice perceptions popping up here and there.

  • Typical L'Arlot wine: colour light red, stemmy nose and taste, red fruit, raspberry. Elegant and defined. Good length. Another 2008 1er cru wine that is approachable now already
