RATINGS

90-92The Wine Advocate

..dense, foursquare, muscular, and powerful wine is a quintessential Nuits. Firm, with deeply ripe black fruits, stones, and mineral flavors as well as a highly-structured personality, this offering does not seduce as much as it impresses.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits Villages, Nuits-St.-Georges, Les Pruliers

Les Pruliers is a 17.7-acre Premier Cru vineyard in Nuits-Saints-Georges, in Burgundy’s Cote de Nuits. It is in the central part of of the appellation. Because there are no Grand Cru vineyards in Nuits-Saints-Georges, the appellation’s considerable reputation rests on its excellent Premier Crus. At an elevation of 250-270 meters, the vineyard has an ideal elevation, and the soil contains large amounts of stone, gravel and limestone.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
