Winemaker Notes

This 46 acres vineyard grows on a steep slope in the middle of a hillside. The shallow, calcareous brown soil is mixed with pebbles and clay loams over hard limestone. The 40 years old vines produce balanced and concentrated grapes.

The name “Les Hauts Pruliers” originates from wild plum trees with blue bays which tannins cling to the gums. This wine is therefore a sensual and lively wine, with a rather masculine personality, which does not leave the amateurs indifferent. Its power gives it an excellent aging potential. With age, it will develop aromas of dried prunes.

This is an ideal pairing wine for regional dishes in sauce, such as ham and game meat. Its tannic character adapts to a full-bodied and spicy cuisine.

Critical Acclaim

WS 93
Wine Spectator
An elegant, spicy style, this red evokes floral and wild berry notes. with sandalwood, cardamom and cinnamon details that accent the core of cherry and rose flavors. Tightly wound, this lingers with fruit and spice elements. Best from 2019 through 2035.

Domaine Daniel Rion & Fils, Nuits-St-Georges, Cote de Nuits, Cote d'Or, Burgundy, France
Image of winery
Created in 1955 by Daniel Rion, this family-owned estate began with only two hectares of vines located in the commune of Vosne Romanee, left to Daniel by his paternal grandfather. Until 1978, Daniel sold his wine to Burgundian negociants. In the late seventies, his sons joined the business, bringing new parcels of vines with them. A new winery was built with a larger cellar and a tasting room. Today, the domaine consists of eighteen hectares of vineyards with eighteen appellations in six villages of the Cote des Nuits and the Hautes-Cotes: Premeaux, Nuits Saint Georges, Vosne Romanee, Chambolle Musigny, Vougeot and Marey-les-Fussey.

Nuits-St-Georges

View all wine

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.

Pinot Noir

View all wine

One of the most difficult yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is commonly referred to by winemakers as the “heartbreak grape.” However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. More reflective than most varieties of the land on which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality, and demands care in the vineyard and lots of attention in the winery. It is an important component of Champagne and the only variety permitted in red Burgundy. Pinot Noir enjoys immense popularity internationally, most notably in Oregon, California, and New Zealand.

In the Glass

Pinot Noir Is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and lively acidity. It ranges in body from very light to the heavier side of medium, typically landing somewhere in the middle—giving it extensive possibilities for food pairing. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount), it can develop hauntingly beautiful characteristics of fresh earth, autumn leaves, and truffles.

Perfect Pairings

Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon, ocean trout, and tuna. Its mild mannered tannins don’t fight with spicy food, and give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry—chicken, quail, and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, it can even match with heavier fare. Pinot Noir is also very vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

Sommelier Secret

Pinot Noir is dangerously drinkable, highly addictive, and has a bad habit of emptying the wallet. Look for affordable but still delicious examples from Germany (as Spätburgunder), Italy (as Pinot Nero), Chile, New Zealand, and France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions.
