Situated roughly halfway between Beaune and Dijon, the small town of Nuits St. Georges is the commercial center of the Cote de Nuits. The commune has more premier cru vineyards (thirty-eight) than any other appellation in Burgundy, yet it has no grand crus. The wines can be stimulating. A good Nuits St. Georges, even a villages level bottling, should be a rugged wine when young – tannic, robust, richly concentrated and unbending. These are wines of structure and scale, built for aging and rewarding those who wait with an earthiness different from any other.
