History Economy Domaine de l'Arlo received a new round of development, when it became the manager Jean-Pierre de Smet. As the experimenter by nature, he undertook a series of actions that have changed the way the economy. According to the authoritative directory of French wines Le Guide Hachette des Vins, the highlight of the economy is to create white wines Nuits-Saint-Georges with the addition of graded composition 4% Pinot Beraud, taken in the name of Burgundy Pinot Gris.
At the moment, 14 hectares of land planted with Pinot Noir, which is made from red wine and only 5% of the total land set aside for growing Chardonnay and Pinot Gris, of which produce white vintage wines. Since 2002, Domain l'Arlo practiced exclusively organic farming. Grapes are traditionally harvested by hand. The small town of Nuits-Saint-Georges is the commercial center of the wine region of Côte de Nuits. It employs many large merchants, such as Joseph and Feveley Moyar.
The vineyards are located on the slopes of the region and only planted Pinot Noir. In Nuits-Saint-Georges and nearby Prem Prissy no Grand Cru vineyards class, but a lot of Premiers Crus, some wines which almost reach the level of Grand Cru, including "Clos de L'Arlo." All these wines are quite bright, but with a balanced taste, sweet note and oak aroma with a hint of smoke.
