Winemaker Notes

The wine has the typical Nuits-Saint-Georges structure but the tannins remain elegant and testify to the proximity of Vosne-Romanée. The nights-Saint-Georges 1st Cru Aux Crasis tasty and dynamic, always with a nice balance. The flesh, very present, with its notes of juicy black fruits (blackberries, blueberries, blackcurrant) is enriched with floral nuances (elder, heather) and spicy. Always tonic, the wine is animated by a saline minerality and a fresh finish (liquorice, menthol).

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
BH 94

Soft reduction takes the top notes off the nose though the underlying fruit seems to be clearly ripe. There is excellent delineation and punch to the intensely mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors that possess solid mid-palate concentration as well as outstanding persistence on the beautifully tension-filled finish. This is quite firmly structured and will probably not be a good candidate for early drinking. On the other hand this muscular but refined effort should handsomely repay those buyers who possess the patience to wait. Barrel Sample: 91-94

V 93

Bright, full red. Distinctly blacker fruits on the nose than most of the foregoing samples, along with a note of crushed stone. Densely packed and sappy, with black fruit flavors complicated by a saline quality and nicely restrained sweetness. This dry, classic, tannic premier cru is still quite youthfully imploded. Rating: 91-93

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2013 Nuits St Georges Aux Cras comes from 80- to 85-year-old vines and has a broody blackberry and raspberry bouquet, stony and reserved. The palate is succulent on the entry, sweet and playful with candied orange peel governing the harmonious finish. This has a lovely exotic streak, which is an absolute delight. Check this out. Rating: 91-93

Nuits-St-Georges Wine

Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

View all products

Inhabiting the bottom end of the northern half of the Côte d’Or, Nuits-St-Georges is a busy, market-driven town and home to many of Burgundy’s negociants. It is also the largest town in the Côte d’Or after Beaune and contributes "nuits" to the name of Côte de Nuits (i.e., the northern half of the Côte d’Or).

The appellation itself is divided into two parts, where in the north it directly borders Vosne-Romanée, the southerly end is the commune of Prémeaux. There are no Grands Crus in this village, though it does have a large number of Premiers Crus.

The best Nuits-St-Georges Pinot Noir are layered with cherry, plum, underbrush and sandalwood. The fruit is sweet, the wine energetic, and the finish long and lush.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
