The origin of the name Craipillot comes from the French word "craie" designating a stony terrain, and "pillot" possibly a pile stones. Gevrey vignerons always talk of the "cône de dejection" from the Combe Lavaux, or; in English, the wash of sand, stones and rocks from the Lavaux Valley and its river/glacier that was forced downslope over millennia, across what are now many of Gevrey’s vineyards. These vines in this 1er Cru average over 75yo with some up to 100yo, and make a beautifully concentrated wine. Craipillot often produces lively, very fruity wines with aromas of liquorice and violet, less structured than other 1er crus like Clos du Chateau and Clos St Jacques across the road, it is nevertheless powerful with a lot of finesse.
