"The 1990 Nuits Saint Georges Clos de l'Arlot has a unique place in my heart. It was my Burgundy epiphany during my inaugural trip to the region, dining at Ma Cuisine restaurant in Beaune and this was the first time I had tasted it since then. Thankfully, after a TCA-riddled bottle last year, it lived up to expectation. Clearly, it has aged over the intervening years, much paler than I remember it. The wine is fully matured but fragrant: dessicated red cherries, tomato vine, heather and orange blossom, a little rustic but utterly charming. The palate has a sensual, mellow feel to it, a wine relaxing into its favourite armchiar, rustic with balance and packed full of endearing secondary notes of cooked meat and sage, a little animally on the finish. I would not hesitate opening bottles, but I can envisage this doling out pleasure over the next decade." - Neal Martin, robertparker.com (Feb 27, 2015)
