“It’s hard to get good grapes from vines planted on a cement highway.” Winemaker at Domaine Arlaud, Cyprien, states his reasoning for not using tractors in the vineyard, as part of his conversion of all the family properties to biodynamic vineyards, starting in 1997 when he took over. Dom. Arlaud is bottling some of the more lively and exciting Burgundies today. Their naturalistic approach continues in the winery where minimal intervention is done, and the fruit and terroir of Burgundy are allowed to speak for themselves.
The Charmes Chambertin site is located in the famed village of Gevrey-Chambertin in the Cote de Nuits. Though the vineyard is historic and famed, the talent is really coming from Cyprien Arlaud. No one is making wines of this esteem at this price point, and at a fraction of the price, than other great Burgundy producers.
