Cellar/Tasting Notes
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: " As to the style of the 2011 vintage, it didn't produce particularly big wines but they are suave and seductive plus they display their respective terroirs quite clear. This isn't always the case with vintages that are very seductive because the aromas are generally a bit too ripe for the terroir to come through without distortion. The other aspect that I really like about them is that they are very saline in character, which I believe contributes greatly to how refreshing they are to drink. In fact, even though they should age very well, the wines can already be enjoyed for their freshness and energy."
Burghound (BH): 89-92
" A discreet touch of oak sets off more elegant aromas of kirsch, sandalwood, anise and clove plus enough earth to remind you that you're very much in Nuits. There is good richness but also fine detail to the firm and serious yet refined flavors that offer a well-integrated tannic spine on the mouth coating finish. This is not quite as complex as the Pruliers, or at least it isn't at present, but the length is every bit as good."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 88-91
"Bright medium red. Sexy, soil-inflected aromas of red fruits, smoke, tobacco and minerals. A step up in creaminess of texture from the Charmois, and in a somewhat softer style, showing gentle extraction and nicely integrated acidity. The elegant side of Nuits-Saint-Georges, finishing with suave tannins and no rough edges. "Nuits-Saint-George made by a Vosne-Romanee vigneron," admitted Grivot before I had a chance to say the same thing."
