MICHEL ARCELAIN SPOTLIGHT MIXED CASE
We can tell you things about Michel Arcelain that at first would not seem to have anything to do with wine. But then everything in Michel’s life has something to do with wine.
He’s tucked into his 90s, though you would swear he’s 60-something. He’s fit and lean like Ghandi, with big weathered hands, colossal exuberance and enormous strength of character. With more than 60 harvests under his belt, the man is larger than life.
Domaine Michel Arcelain is made up of parcels of vines inherited over a number of generations, as well as vineyards purchased by them over the years. These vineyards (with the exception of a small parcel in Chardonnay) are all Pinot Noir of the highest quality, known as Pinot Fin.
The selection of quality vines was primordial for the domain... and, to add to his résumé, Michel Arcelain is one of the few Burgundian producers who still retains a portion of each harvest to allow it to age properly (to its ideal age, up to 10 years) in his cellars.
The wines of Domaine Arcelain are timeless classics. Never brash, they do drink well young; however, hidden within these powerfully subtle wines, there is an immense ability to age and improve.
