Nuits-Saint-Georges is the second largest appellation in the Côte de Nuits – the largest is Gevrey-Chambertin, but such is its fame that the northern half of the Côte d’Or has borrowed its name. There are 650 acres of vineyards in the commune of Nuits-Saint-Georges, with the vines of Vosne-Romanée to the north, and 133 acres to the south in the commune of Premeaux. The soils in the northern sector derive from pebbly alluvium washed down from up-slope, or, in the low-lying parts, silty deposits from the river Meuzin. In the southern sector the alluvia at the base of the slope originate in the combe of Vallerots where there are deep marly-limestone soils, while at the top of the slope, the rock is almost at the surface. Exposures are mostly to the east or south-east.
Wine maker notes
Grapes are hand-picked and undergo six days pre-fermentation maceration. Fermentation takes place in thermo-regulated iron vats for fifteen days. Malolactic fermentation takes place soon after, and the wine matures for fourteen months in Burgundian French oak barrels, the wine is gently filtered before it is bottled.

Food pairing
Partner with roast lamb, rib steak, or duck breast. Also delicious with fish dishes in red-wine sauce and soft centered cheeses in the style of Époisses, Langres or Soumaintrain.
