"Monopole of a superficy area of 3,6 hectares, this parcel is located right under les Perrières, a former pit of Nuits Saint Georges that was previously exploited by the monks of Citeaux. Set on the pink limestone and very rocky Premeaux, the Clos des Porrets is made of limestone screes and of a soil high in clay on lower slopes. Long-keeping wines that come from it express a lovely finesse after a few years of bottles. The Porrets are especially mentioned by Dr Lavalle in 1855, author of a well-known book on the wines of Burgundy, which he considers as one of the best cru of the commune."
Winemaker's notes


"No separate HD cuvée was made this year as there was not enough wine, after the hail as well as in a dry year. Long slow fermentation and the malolactic is still happening. Black purple. Ignore the nose for now, as it shows malolactic elements. Super intensity, a bit of Bovril meatiness, really hard to judge though looks like will broadly be the same pattern as the others, though perhaps even more concentrated. 14.8% alcohol. Tasted: November 2021."
