1er Cru Les Pruliers
Nuits-Saint-Georges is one of those magical names that visitors recite like a rosary. Known the whole world over, Nuits-Saint-Georges has the original profile of a genuine wine village, but on the scale of a small town.
Halfway between Dijon and Beaune, and with an easterly exposure, the vineyards of Nuits-Saint-Georges extend over 6 kilometres, with 140 hectares of Premier Cru vines. The range of soils, exposure and locations here creates a great diversity of terroirs. The area is bisected by the valley of the small Meuzin river, and the village itself.
The premier cru "Les Pruliers" is located above our plot "Belle Croix" in the middle of the hill south of the village. The soil is brown, silty in nature with calcareous gravel. In the region, the tree was called a "pruyer". In the past, there were many rowan trees in the plot.
