Aloxe-Corton 2009, Follin Arbelet
My knowledge of the Domaine Follin-Arbelet is limited to their entry in the venerable Guide Hachette: they have 4 hectares of vineyards and are located in Aloxe. They can't be much good at marketing because the second page retrieved on a Google search is this Burgoblog tasting note of the Aloxe-Corton 2006! A nose of sweet raspberry, high toned berry fruits, fresh plums. Then on the palate, wow! Rich, hot, fruity, long, really puissant. An interesting contrast. Enjoyable but leaves me a little uncertain as to what Act II will be in 2013. Tasted courtesy of the Justerini & Brooks Burgundy 2009 tasting. Photo is a view to Aloxe from Savigny.
