Domaine Arlaud Clos de la Roche 2005
The family practices totally organic viticulture, eliminating tractors for tilling the vineyards in favor of horses. These are concentrated, silky Burgundies that are quite approachable in their youth, but will age beautifully. Wonderful depth and density, with plenty of Valhrona chocolate and black cherries. A subtle nose of spice and roasted game announces a Burgundy of serious potential. Aged 60% in new wood.
