Nuits-St-Georges "Les Vaucrains"

Premier Cru

The commune of Nuits-Saint-Georges is the southernmost commune of the Côte de Nuits, and includes, from a viticultural standpoint, the small adjoining commune of Prémeaux-Prissey. There are 431 acres of vineyards which take this appellation at the village level, of which 29 are in Prémeaux. Of the premier cru vineyards, numbering 36, 28 vineyards occupy 248 acres in Nuits-Saint-Georges; the remaining eight, in Prémeaux, cover 104 acres. The Les Vaucrains is a vineyard of 15 acres lying up-slope at 260-280 meters in the south part of Prémeaux.

Mounir explains that "Les Vaucrains" is high in the hills, and a classic, balanced, and pure example of Nuits-Saint-Georges.  It is one of his favorite Premier Crus in Burgundy.
