The Côte de Nuits-Villages
is common to many villages in the département of the Côte d'Or. The Côte de Nuits covers an area of about 150 hectares in all or part of the communes of Brochon, Fixin, Prémeaux, Comblanchien and Corgoloin. The wines of the Côte de Nuits-Villages have enjoyed appellation status since 1964 and are admirably well represented by Louis Jadot and Joseph Drouhin.
Adjoining the vineyards of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte de Nuits-Villages appellation vineyards grow mainly on clay-limestone terrain: the hillside slopes in Comblanchien and Corgoloin are carved into Upper Bathonian hard limestone. In the north of the Côte de Nuits-Villages, fossiliferous limestone is most commonly found
The Côte de Nuits-Villages red wines are almost exclusively from the Pinot Noir grape variety and the whites are made from the Chardonnay. The production of the latter is small. The Côte de Nuits reds have a strong character, with a certain fruitiness and roundness. The whites display the richness and aromatic depth characteristic of the Chardonnay.
