The domaine was co-owned by Jean-Pierre de Smet, who spent eight years alongside Jacques Seysses of Domaine Dujac before taking over L’Arlot in 1986. Today, the domaine consists of 14 hectares planted to mostly Pinot Noir, with 5% devoted to Chardonnay for their ultra-rare white wines. The oldest vines are 70+ years old, with the average age close to 50. In 2015 Geraldine Godot took over the domaine, bringing her own style with extraction kept to a minimum, and the wines seeing less new oak than in the past.  Geraldine is committed to maintaining their classic and elegant style of terroir driven wines. ‘Clos des Forêts Saint Georges’ (monopole) is the estate’s core, made from the oldest vines.
