Named after the Château Gris castle which in time gave its name to the vineyard which surrounded it, and which is the source of this wine, this Premier Cru is elegant and refined. The grapes are grown on terraces above the castle up to 280 metres above sea level. The nose has floral notes with mineral complexity and a hint of vanilla and toast from barrel-fermentation (35% new oak) and further oak ageing of up to 18 months.
- 'This is all Chardonnay, worth mentioning for a white Nuits-St-Georges as many contain Pinot Blanc. It is grown in free-standing bush vines, which give low yields, 16hl/ha in 2019. Pale lime and lemon, rather an elegant version, despite the thickness of texture from the low yield. This is a wine, which will surprise people and it doesn't conform to the usual rules. A little below 14% so not for drinking casually. Energy comes from the opposite slopes of the dip, or creux, which forms this vineyard, officially called Les Crots.' - Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy
