Clos de l’Arlot, Premier cru: This 5.44-hectare Premier Cru climat, located in the appellation of Nuits-St-Georges, is a a monopole of the Domaine de l’Arlot. It lies along the Beaune-Dijon road as it passes through the commune of Premeaux-Prissey immediately to the north of the Clos de la Marechale. Due to a geological fault, the slope of the land becomes quite steep, ranging from 10% to a dizzying 35%. Facing east, southeast and lying at 230-260m above sea level, the soil is a rich mixture of limestone and clay over a base of Comblanchien limestone. Unusually, this Nuits-St-Georges vineyard produces both red and white wine. There are 1.76 hectares devoted to Chardonnay and 2 hecatres to Pinot Noir. The vineyard takes its name from the tiny Arlot River, a tributary of the Courtavaux River.
