Domaine Arlaud Charmes-Chambertin 2012


We currently have 3 in stock.

Domaine Arlaud is an organic and biodynamic wine maker in Burgundy, producing wonderful, pure expressions of their terroir. Arlaud have a very high level of respect for the land that they work on, utilitising a horse and plough rather than a heavy tractor, which can compress and negatively change the ground it works on. Almost all of the vines are tended by hand.

This care continues into the winery where grapes are sorted by hand on two consecutive tables. Fermentation starts spontaneously with wild yeast, which produces a nuance and purity of flavour related to the terroir of the grapes, rather than using a commercial yeast which can effect the wine in a particular way.

Just 5,200 bottles of this Charmes-Chambertin are produced each year. The vines for this wine have an average age of 38 years, but 50% were planted in 1957. The wine is aged for 12-18 months in 50% new oak. No fining or filtration is carried out.

Vinous gives this 92/100:

Moderately saturated medium red. Aromas of plum, redcurrant, smoky minerals, earthy underbrush and flowers. Fresh and not at all overripe, with lovely intense red fruit flavors displaying good inner-mouth tension. This seems already to be shutting down in the bottle. A bit sullen at present now but should ultimately make a complex bottle.
