Côte de Nuits, Burgundy, France

Nuits-Saint-Georges is the largest town in the Burgundy sub-region of the Côte de Nuits. The Côte de Nuits is in fact named after Nuits-Saint-Georges, which historically played an important role in the trading of the sub-region’s wines. The appellation of Nuits-Saint-Georges wine comprises 300ha of vineyards in the communes of Nuits-Saint-Georges itself and Premeaux-Prissey.

About 97% of production in the appellation is devoted to Pinot Noir, the rest being mostly Chardonnay with a little Pinot Blanc and Gris. The appellation is divided into two parts: the northern part borders Vosne-Romanée, while the southern part, which extends across Nuits-Saint-Georges and Premeaux, borders the appellation of Côte de Nuits Villages.

Red Nuits-Saint-Georges wines are typically tense, muscular and full-bodied, with a tannic structure which necessitates several years of laying down before the wines’ fine, elegant, perfumed essence is revealed.
