Elegant and classy on the nose, this Premier Cru features aromas of black fruit with fine, delicate floral notes. On the palate, the body has a great deal of sucrosity but with beautiful structure, and well-integrated oak that does not overpower the fruit. Pleasant feeling of freshness on the finish.

The Château Gris castle was built in the 18th century in the middle of its 3.5 ha (8.6 acre) walled vineyard. After the vineyards were destroyed by phylloxera, the roof of the castle was covered with gray slate although tiles are the traditional material used in Burgundy. The people of Nuits-Saint-Georges therefore began to refer to it as Château Gris (grey castle) and the name stuck. Further to a court ruling in the 1920s, the name “Château Gris” was allowed to prevail over the name of the place (lieu-dit) “Les Crots” where the vines are planted. The vines are planted on terraces that cling to the slope at an altitude of 280 meters. The plots of land at the foot of the castle produce Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru “Château Gris” red.
