Production area

Grapes for this village appellation located in the Côte de Nuits are harvested within the delimited areas of the village of Nuits-Saint-Georges. This appellation covers a surface area of 206,84 hectares of which 143,11 hectares are classified as Premier Cru. The soil of the “Côte” is derived principally from the subsidence of the Saône River floodplain which resulted in a 200 metres drop with relation to the Morvan plateau, creating a long hillside with very regular slopes and eastern and south-eastern exposure.


This fault also freed minerals that had been trapped in the soil for thousands of years. The vineyards stretch across the gentle slopes of the hillside allowing the vines to take full advantage of exposure to the sun. The soil of Nuits-Saint-Georges is composed of limestone and marl.

Vintage : 2014

The 2014 vintage in Bourgogne: All the makings of a great
After the dormant winter period, the vines returned to life in clement, warm and dry conditions. The start of the growing cycle gave an early indication of the potential harvest, despite some incidence of shatter, when the flowers fail to form fruit.
At the end of June, the weather changed, becoming cool and damp, but ripening continued nonetheless. The return of the sun and a northerly wind – the signature of September in the Bourgogne wine region – led to ideal conditions for the vines to reach full maturity. Picking began in mid-September in a serene and sunny atmosphere, and vinification unfolded without problem.
