Domaine de L'Arlot
Located in the Cote de Nuits, 2 km south of Nuits-St.-George, the domaine took its name from the "Clos de l'Arlot." a 10-acre vineyard surrounding the house. The French insurance group AXA bought the estate in 1987 and is the sole owner of the vineyard. Manager Jean-Pierre De Smet shares this responsibility with Lise Judet, co-owner and partner, and Olivier Lerich, technical director. The vineyards are mainly located around Nuits-St.-Georges (Clos de l'Arlot, Clos des Forets Saint Georges) as well as in the Vosne Romanee (Les Suchots, Romanee Saint Vivant). There are many old vines, some 50 years or more, with an average age of 30 years. The vineyard management is mainly organic with a biodynamic approach.
