We are delighted to invite you to our next virtual Tasting with Cyprien Arlaud on Wednesday 3 June at 7pm.
Domaine Arlaud, based in Morey-St-Denis, was founded in 1942 through the marriage of Joseph Arlaud, a man from Ardèche and the Burgundian Renée Amiot, whose dowry includes some of the finest plots in the Côte de Nuits. Today the Domaine is run by their grandson Cyprien Arlaud, who has been key in the conversion to Biodynamic and in the vineyard is helped by horses Nougat and Oka. In the winery, he believes in minimal intervention with low extraction and restrained oak (0-30% depending on Cuvee and vintage). His wines, as a result, are pure and expressive.
Jeannie Cho Lee MW included Cyprien in her new book “The 100 Burgundy: exceptional wines to build a dream cellar” and among the 10 producers for her recent Decanter article on Burgundians that are ‘producing the most exciting wines at the highest calibre and quality for their respective regions. These producers are incredibly talented, dedicated and driven to continually improve their wines…What they have in common is that they have not yet reached their peak’.
We are looking forward to hosting this evening with Cyprien. His dedication to biodynamic viticulture and precision in the cellar, promises to make this a fascinating evening.
