Wine of Nuits-Saint-Georges appellation
The Nuits-Saint-Georges AOC is an appellation of Côte de Nuits in the Côte d'Or. Since its creation in 1936, the appellation can be produced in the communes of Nuits-Saint-Georges and Premeaux-Prissey. The appellation falls into two parts, one extending as far as Vosne-Romanée in the Serrée valley, the other to the south. Subtle differences are therefore found in the wines. The Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru appellation has been awarded to 41 climats, recognized within the appellation, covering 140 hectares and producing around half of the Nuits-Saint-Georges. 

In the northern sector, the soil is derived from pebbly alluvium washed down from Côte. In the lower-lying areas, there are silty deposits from the Meuzin valley. In the southern sector, the silt at the base of the slope originates from the Vallerots valley, 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 southeast. 

The Nuits-Saint-Georges and Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru red wines, made almost exclusively from the Pinot Noir, usually display a strong, dark hue. The aromas are powerful and complex: a mixture of cherry, blackcurrant, fur, truffle, and often spices. They are among the most tannic wines of Burgundy. Their balance between tannin and smoothness makes them robust and full-bodied. The white wines, made from Chardonnay, are very rare. 

In addition to the quality of the terroir, there are also a number of great domaines which make the Nuits-Saint-Georges and Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru appellation famous. These include Domaine des Perdrix, Domaine Dominique Laurent, Faiveley, Joseph Drouhin, Méo-Camuzet and Bouchard Père et Fils.
