Nuits St Georges – Burgundy


Nuits St Georges (21 Côte d’Or, Bourgogne-Franche-Comté) lies midway between Beaune and Dijon and is famous for its wines. being the capital of the Côte de Nuits wine appellation. It is situated on the Burgundy wine route – Route des Grands Crus. It is an attractive little town with a pedestrianised main street, and plenty of opportunities to taste and buy wine, or try the local gourmet cuisine. There are some outlets from individual domaines and some negociants, who market and sometimes blend wines from different domaines.

Nuits Saint Georges

Most of the vineyards are planted with Pinot Noir grapes, although a few parcels are planted with Chardonnay or Pinot Blanc varieties, yielding a rare and interesting white wine, generally quite firm and opulent.
Red: its colour is usually a full, firm, bright ruby, carmine or intense garnet with purplish highlights. The bouquet is partly of black fruits (blackcurrant, bilberry) and partly of red, pitted fruits such as cherries.

The Nuits St Georges and surrounding Côte de Nuits Burgundy wine appellations produce predominantly red wine from the Pinot Noir grape – although a small amount (less than 5%) is white from Chardonnay.The reds are considered particularly good with great depth of plummy fruit! – see the official Burgundy wines website
