Review:
Domaine Arlaud's eight rows of Bonnes Mares run up the slope from the bottom to the top and cover 0.2ha on red and a smaller percentage of white soils. Picked on September 3rd after a green harvest to reduce yields in July, this is a stunning wine with amazing depth, succulence and concentration. The 30% whole bunches added much needed freshness in such a hot year for the Grand Cru.
