Domaine Jerome Chezeaux Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Pruliers 2012

The smallest-production premier cru in Chezeaux’s cellar, Les Pruliers lies near the border of Nuits-Saint-Georges and Premeaux-Prissey in the southern part of the appellation. Jerome works a mere tenth of a hectare here—a parcel of extremely old vines that produce a wine of warmth and generosity. More full-bodied than the Rue de Chaux above, its fruit is pitched to- ward the deep-purple and the black, and, while not heavy-handed in the slightest, it emphasizes robustness over sleekness.
