Winemaker's Notes

At Vougeot, halfway between Gevrey-Chambertin and Nuits-Saint-Georges, Les Cras lies against the north wall of the Clos de Vougeot, directly in line with the central section of the Grand Cru, at an altitude of 750 feet. The sun rises over the village of Vougeot, and sets over the Clos Blanc.

The nose is intense, of great finesse, fruity (strawberry), evolving towards more floral and spicy notes.

In the mouth the material is complex, its high quality expressing its terroir with total harmony. One should savour the richness of its taste, its vigour, which goes on for several minutes.

Critical Acclaim

"Very ripe, exuding blackberry and plum notes, but lacks integration today between the lush fruit and firm tannins. It comes back on the finish with licorice and oak spice, so give it some time to come together. Best from 2007 through 2018. 400 cases made."
