This plot was so named because the soil is so poor only ronces (mulberries) can grow there. Maximum sunlight and drainage make it one of the best Nuits-St-Georges premier crus. Quite long and full on the palate. Not as robust as the Pruliers but can age just as long.
Etienne Grivot states: "....the the 2009s are very generous but with energy, minerality and finesse. But best of all, they are very well balanced, which will enable them to offer a lot of pleasure when young but age extremely well too if the customer desires it."
Burghound (BH): 90-93
"A ripe, spicy and earthy nose that possesses notes of dried herbs and floral hints gives way to intense, pure and beautifully detailed middle weight flavors that are given shape and support by very fine tannins and excellent length. This is not as powerful as the other Nuits 1ers in the range but it's easily the most refined and will almost certainly mature earlier as well."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 90
"Medium red. Sexy aromas of raspberry, mocha, flowers and underbrush. Suave and silky in the mouth, showing a restrained sweetness and enticing cherry perfume lifted by a faint mineral note. Young and structured wine with a firm, dry finish."
