Lucien Muzard Pommard 'Les Cras' 2020
From vines planted in 1922, from a relatively low-lying vineyard towards the border with Volnay. Les Cras comes from the word ‘craie’ which translates as lime. Low yielding from a parcel of less than 0.5ha.
90-92 4 Stars Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy : "Old vines, around 80 years, with 50% whole bunch vinification. Deep dense concentrated purple. The bouquet is excellent, very deep, all about the fruit. Just a few strawberries but the raspberry dominates. Perhaps some deep red cherry too. Very complete on the palate, a little peppery crunch, well managed tannins and very good length." Tasted: October 2021

Their philosophy is simple: “Lots of care and good work in the vineyard (gentle ploughing, no herbicide, no pesticide, low yield, green harvest, hand harvest etc…) and in the “chais” (winery) – let the fruit do the talking!
