We have always thought of Aux Cras as one of the best premier crus in Nuits Saint Georges. When you get to this part of the appellation it is not always easy to tell it apart from Vosne-Romanée in a blind tasting. Aux Cras is in the family of Malconsorts: it is built on core and minerality. And that is what we love about it. "It's salty, fruity, floral, earthy, airy," says Pascal. "You can taste the power and imagine you are in Nuits. But it has the elegance of Vosne."

The 2019 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Cras is a fine success in the making, unfurling to reveal scents of cassis, blackberries, smoked meats and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, it's deep and lively, with prodigious reserves of fruit framed by powdery tannins and bright acids.

The 2019 Nuits Saint-Georges Aux Cras 1er Cru has a Voral nose of violet-infused blue and red fruit, plus a touch of baking powder in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannins, the 100% whole bunch neatly integrated but lending pepperiness toward the long Znish. Delightful.
