Although it rests on the southern border of Vosne-Romanée home to a set of incredible Grand Cru vineyards, Nuits-Saint-Georges has no Grand Cru’s of its own. Many would argue that one or two of the Premier Cru vineyards are worthy of an upgrade.
It’s uncanny how many times I’ve had a village Nuits from a good producer with 10-15 years of bottle age and remarked on both the quality and beauty of the wine.
Nuits produces virtually 100% Pinot Noir. There are a couple of sneaky whites, literally, made in Nuits. Henri Gouges makes a Pinot ‘Gouges’, a Blanc mutation of Pinot Noir, and a couple of Chardonnay’s from Domaine de l’Arlot.
The wines of Nuits like any village varying significantly. The sites toward the south tend to be more masculine. The sites to the north closer to Vosne-Romanée tend to be more feminine. They can offer incredible complexity and vitality.
