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 with less than 1% of production devoted to white wines (6,79 ha).
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.
