- Nuits-Saint-Georges, an ancient city which, at one time, had a surrounding wall like Beaune, is the heart and capital of the Côte de Nuits.
- Its perfect exposure to the east gives the vineyards the capacity to produce splendid wines.
- The little stream flowing down from the Côte actually cuts this relatively large appellation in two.
- The Northern part, next to Vosne, produces wines that have the delicacy and finesse of that appellation. South of the stream, the soil is particularly stony and hard, with a type of white, grey, which you can actually see from the main road.
- These vineyards produce a firmer, more austere wine which takes longer to mature.
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Pinot Noir
FOOD PAIRINGS: This great red Burgundy deserves a more traditional cuisine: red meat in light sauces, game, venison and ripe cheeses will create a rich tapestry of flavors worthy of a medieval feast.
TASTING NOTES: “Deep red color. The aromas are powerful and elegant, with notes of cherry and blackberry, as well as hints of cedar wood evolving towards gamey touches. On the palate, beautiful balance between structure and softness. The long aftertaste is reminiscent of fruit syrups and mild spices”. – Véronique Boss-Drouhin
