Domaine de l'Arlot is the site of the former Domaine Jules Belin in Premeaux, located just south of Nuits St. Georges. The Domaine is co-owned by Jean-Pierre De Smet, who spent about eight years alongside Jacques Seysses of Domaine Dujac before taking over at Arlot in 1986, and Lise Judet. Today, 14 hectares are planted with Pinot Noir for the red wines, with about 5% devoted to Chardonnay and Pinot Gris for the whites. The oldest vines are about 50 years old, with the average age around 25. Since 2002 the Domaine has practiced 100% organic farming.
The Domaine has two premier cru Monopoles: Clos des Forêts Saint Georges (7 hectares) and Clos de L'Arlot (4 hectares). The Clos de L'Arlot also produces about 3,000 bottles of a rare white Nuits St. Georges. The Nuits St. George AC is made from the young Clos des Forêts vines, producing about 3,000 bottles. The Côte de Nuits Villages Clos du Chapeau is only about 3 hectares.
