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 2020 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Cras is excellent, unwinding in the glass with aromas of sweet red berries and plums mingled with woodsmoke, loamy soil and spices. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, with lively acids and a long, rose-inflected finish, it's one of the high points of the range.

The 2020 Nuits Saint-Georges Aux Cras 1er Cru has a gentle nose, beautifully defined, a mixture of red and blueberry fruit, wilted violet and light undergrowth scents, gaining intensity with aeration. The palate is mediumbodied with supple, but firm tannins, fine acidity, quite grippy with firm backbone on the finish with a tang of black pepper on the finish. You will find few Premier Crus from this appellation better than this (except Mugneret's own Le Richemone!)
