The two primary parcels are in "Plantes Aux Barons" (.40 hectare) and "Charbonnieres" (.60 hectare), both of which are in Prémeaux on its northern border with Nuits. These low-yielding old vines produce a concentrated and classic Nuits.

Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Nuits St. Georges is a bit rounder and fleshier than the Morey. Layers of dark red berries, menthol and spices wrap around the soft, caressing finish. This is an especially juicy, up-front 2010 best suited for drinking over the next handful of years. These vineyards are in Premeaux-Prissey. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018.
