Discover the Nuits-Saint-Georges appellation
Between Dijon and Beaune lies the village of Nuits-Saint-Georges, which strongly contibuted to the reputation of the Côte de Nuits. This appellation surrounds the burgundian town and reaches Vosne-Romanée and Premeaux-Prissey to the north, and Beaune to the south. In the northern part of the vineyard, on the hills of the Meuzin valley, the soils are made of a mixture of gravel and silt, on top of the alluvial deposit. In the southern area, the blend of silt, marl and limestone comes straight from the combe of Vallerots. Different soils, orientations and locations help make the parcels of the vineyard really unique. This results in very different wines.
Although the production is mostly Pinot Noir, there are some Chardonnay grapevines in the Premiers Crus of the Clos Arlot, Les Perrières and Les Porrets Saint-Georges. The Nuits-Saint-Georges AOC makes red and white wines, with 41 climates classified as Premiers Crus (145 hectares), and 310 hectares in total. The local winemakers can output 12,000 hectoliters of wine each year on average (5,400 of which are Premiers Crus).
