Notes from Kermit Lynch Wine Merchants:
"Brothers Bertrand and Denis Chevillon are the fifth generation managers of this property in Nuits- Saint-Georges, which means they work the vines and make the wines. Their father Robert, for whom the domaine is named, is still active as well. Both brothers bring passion, experience, a tireless work ethic, and intensity to their work at the domaine. Tasting through their palate of Nuits-Saint-Georges is a venerable tour of the appellation."
The name "Les Pruliers" is a reference to the wild plum trees that existed on the plot before it was ever planted to vines. Pruliers faces due east, catching the morning sun, and is on a moderate slope. Grapes are fully destemmed, and undergo a long, slow, cool primary fermentation before a 20 month elevage in roughly 30% new oak.
