Maison Cyprien Arlaud
Villages Red barrel
Tasted: Jan 10, 2019
Note: 95% from Aux Communes
Producer note: Please see the section on Domaine Arlaud for a description of the 2017 vintage. As was the case with the Domaine wines, I did not find these to be at their usual qualitative level. (Skurnik Wines, www.skurnik.com, NY, North Berkeley Imports, www.northberkeleyimports.com, CA, both USA; O.W. Loeb, www.owloeb.com and Flint Wines, www.flintwines.com, both UK).
Tasting note: Firm reduction again masks the fruit. Otherwise the sleek but not especially dense flavors are shaped by polished tannins on the compact and dusty finish that isn’t particularly persistent but it is better balanced.
