Nuits-St-Georges

Nuits-St-GeorgesNuits-St-Georges AOC is located in the heart of Côte de Nuits in Burgundy and borders to the north with the famous Vosne Romanée. Nuits-St-Georges soil is composed by heavy iron-rich clay called marl. The marl provides Pinot Noir grapes with their strong expression. Nuits-St-Georges produces mainly red wine based on Pinot Noir grapes. White wine production represents only a very small percentage and it based on Chardonnay grapes. Nuits-St-Georges red wines are well-known for their classical Burgundy profile. The red wines present elegant red fruit flavors with complex earth and spice notes.

Nuits-St-Georges appellation has two main wine styles and each presents a unique terroir expression: Northern wines and Southern wines. The wines coming from the North (bordering with Vosne-Romanée) are more elegant and less powerful due to lighter soil richer in limestone. The wines coming from the south are more robust and powerful due to heavier soil richer in marl.
