2012 Les Crais Domaine Huguenot
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
This is at the bottom of the Combe de Lavaux, and the soil is a stony mix of clay and rock, all good stuff washed down from higher up. Lots of finesse. Supple yet quite firm under the initial coating, classic black fruit and it has a richness too, but mostly it is delicate and fine, juicy and long. L&S (Dec 2013)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
The Huguenots can trace their history in Marsannay and working in the vines back to 1789. Currently the domaine is run by Philippe. His father Jean-Louis expanded the domaine from five to twenty-two hectares (twelve in Marsannay, six in Fixin, and four in Gevrey) before handing over the reins. Philippe has taken the bold step of taking all twenty-two hectares into organic production (the conversion was completed in 2010).
