We are thrilled to welcome Cyprien Arlaud of Domaine Arlaud to the mezzanine next week for our next Burgundy masterclass. With the Morey-Saint-Denis Domaine in his charge since 1997, Cyprien has presided over a full conversion to biodynamic certification, the transition to horse-ploughing, a move toward lower intervention in the cellar, and other key steps in the evolution of Arlaud.

The history of Domaine Arlaud started during World War II, when Joseph Arlaud (originally from the Ardèche) met and fell in love with Renée Amiot, who came from a historic Burgundian family. Part of the couple’s wedding gifts were parcels of land in the Côte de Nuits, centered around the top crus of Morey St. Denis and Gevrey-Chambertin. And so Domaine Arlaud was born. Joseph’s son, Hervé Arlaud, took over the estate in 1982 and expanded the domaine with more purchases of prime vineyards, mostly in their home village of Morey St. Denis. Today, the star of the show is Hevré’s son Cyprien, who in the last ten years, has come into his own as one of the most exciting growers in all of France.

As Cyprien notes, “It’s hard to get good grapes from vines planted on a cement highway.” Luckily for him, his sister Bertille has become one of the most important trainer of horses for ploughing in all of France, providing her services for many top estates across the country. The results from this intense care for the vines became evident very quickly, with wines that spoke of terroir in the clearest of voices.

We will taste through their wines while enjoying light bites. Class starts at 6pm. Tickets are $80, seating is extremely limited, and special pricing on the featured wines will be made available only to attendees. We hope you can join us for this exclusive event.

Focus On: Burgundy

Burgundy has long been the world's most famous wine region. But, underneath all the prestige, this region can be hard to get to know.

While Burgundy offers many great trophies from top producers in well-known villages like Vosne Romanee and Puligny Montrachet, it also offers excellent values to anyone willing to explore beyond the famous names. Our collection– one of the largest in the U.S. – has plenty of both!

From the very basics of Burgundy's regions and wines to the specific terroirs of individual single vineyards--
everything you need to know about Bourgogne is just a click away!
