The Domaine Arlaud Les Blanchards is slightly closed. In the bouquet cherry stones, gooseberries, raspberrries and darker notes as cassis. Slightly dusty. On the palate quite tight with a very good focus and grip. Nice acidity for a 2009. Still it has some of the caracteritic 2009 dark fruits. A very good effort in 2009, but needs time to unfold, will keep and improve for at least 10 years.
(Drink from 2018) Very Good – 89p

There’s no reason to repeat Arlaud’s story here, as it is available and up to date in the article about the 2019s. Photo from March 2021 Just one reminder: Domaine Arlaud is certified both BioDyvin and Agriculture Biologique (AB). It ...
- Visit to Domaine Arlaud – tasting the bottled 2019sDomaine Arlaud is producing some magnificent wines, and year by year the connoisseur’s awareness of them increases. Arlaud is both organically and biodynamically certified, and despite the slowly but surely increasing renown of this estate, it is still somewhat under the radar. How long will that last? The low-key domaine is located in a relatively ...

A very, very rare bird I had a short splash and dash at this tasting, as I ...

The wines of Domaine Arlaud have in my view been somewhat overlooked, but the quality in recent vintages seem to generate more interest and demand for these fine wines – so get ...
