Nuits Saint-Georges

The small town gives its name to the Côtes de Nuits and its patron saint, Saint Georges, gives his name to their most famous wine.  It is also home to several well-known Burgundy merchants.  There are 41 Premier Crus in the appellation that stretches from Premeaux in the south to Vosne Romanée to the north.  Most of the grapes grown here are Pinot Noir, but there are some plots planted with Chardonnay.

The soils in the northern part of the appellation come from pebbly alluvial soils washed down the slopes, or, in the low-lying parts, silty deposits from the river Meuzin.  In the southern sector the alluvia at the base of the slope originate in the combe of Vallerots where there are deep marly-limestone soils, while at the top of the slope, the limestone rock is almost at the surface. Exposures are mostly to the East or Southeast

The appellation is divided into two parts by the town itself. The northern part near Vosne has more purple colours, is rich and scented and has aromas of prune, plum and cherry.  The more southerly climats tend to be muscular and vigorous, full-bodied with berried fruit and blackcurrant.  These are sturdy wines that take some time to age; several years’ laying down rounds them out and underlines their sensuality and breeding.

    Aux Boudots Nuits Saint-Georges
    Premier Cru Supérieur 0.75l Red
    €75.90 €62.73
    One of the estate's top wines grown on superb terroir on the 'Vosne' side of Nuits-Saint-Georges. It seemlessly blends the more powerful style of the Nuits and the exquisite elegance of Vosne-Romanée. Rich, energetic and brimming with finesse and class. A wine for very long ageing, requiring a good ten years to reveal the breadth of its aromatic complexity.

    Premier Cru Supérieur 0.75l Red
    €121.21 €100.17
    A big success for this climat; delicious and welcoming with the classic pure and lovely flavours of Pinot Noir. On the palate, there is a lovely mix of violets, cassis, sweet spices and oak. Round, velvety and long with lots of potential for aging.

    Domaine Jean Grivot
    Aux Boudots Nuits Saint-Georges
    Premier Cru Supérieur 0.75l Red
    €130.00 €107.44
    One of our favourite climats from Grivot, this is a superb terroir on the "Vosne" side of Nuits-Saint-Georges. It seamlessly blends the more powerful style of the Nuits and the exquisite elegance of Vosne-Romanée. The 2014 is full bodied and spicy with notes of spice, red fruit, cedar and autumn berries. There is beautiful concentration on the palate with a silky texture, elegant, ripe tannins and a seductive, long finish. It would be tempting to drink this wine already but it will probably need around 6-8 years of aging to reveal its true distinction.

    Domaine Jean Grivot
    Aux Boudots Nuits Saint-Georges
    Premier Cru Supérieur 0.75l Red
    €148.20 €122.48
    Powerful and rich on the attack, this wine throws up surprises every time I taste it : there is lots of fruit here, round soft structure and gradually it is revealing notes of plums, minerals and spice. There is lots of freshness here, in spite of the power and above all, balance, class and a very long finish.
  9. Deze fles is 0.75l
    Domaine Jean Grivot
    Aux Boudots Nuits Saint-Georges
    Premier Cru Supérieur 0.75l Red
    €157.00 €129.75
    Een ander klimaat dat we zo aanbidden bij Grivot, eerder vanwege de genereuze rondheid en de zachte kwaliteit van het fruit. Dit klimaat is goed gelegen, bijna op de grens van Nuits-Saint-Georges en Vosne, en weerspiegelt in 2015 de elegantie en kruiden van Vosne. Rijk, gestructureerd en lang met deze verleidelijke kant, een lichte zoetheid in zijn lange afdronk. Zelfs als verleidt zijn rijke stijl ons om jong te drinken, de 2015 Aux Boudots zal over vijf jaar prachtig zijn. Om 2020-2035 te drinken
