The Wine

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

About the Wine Maker

The Muzard Family has been making wine in the Santenay Appellation for nine generations – Today, Lucien Muzard and his two sons (Herve and Claude) cultivate 22 hectares of vines.  Thanks to some of the best positioned vineyards in the village of Santenay, they are producing wines of a very high quality. The family has managed to keep to traditional methods at the same time as instituting new technology. The aging of the wines is done in oak barrels but never more than 35% new (depending on the character of the vintage).

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!
