2018 Arlaud Bourgogne Roncevie

When in 1964 Joseph Arlaud acquired a part of the Roncevie vineyard, the whole vineyard was classified as village Gevrey-Chambertin; that same year, a degree was promulgated reclassifying the Arlaud section alone of Roncevie as only Bourgogne. Village politics? No matter. This is always a fine label that punches above its classification. Relatively light, but with crunchy bramble and plum fruit, nice acidity, fine tannins and a fresh finish. (NT 03/01/20)

Media Reviews

Jasper Morris MW

Dense bright purple, with an inky fruit concentration, some charcoal style tannins behind. Dark raspberry fruit, with significant weight to it, lacks the obvious accessibility of some years but has staying power instead. Quite a powerful Bourgogne. 86 points

Allen Meadows

(from vines in Gevrey). A markedly ripe nose combines notes of black cherry, cassis and dark raspberry with those of earth and a whiff of forest floor. There is reasonably good vibrancy to the sleekly textured flavors that conclude in a dusty, mildly austere and warm finish. 86-88 points
