The ‘Saint-Georges’ climat was added to the name of the Nuits village in 1898. A small town of 5,000 denizens, Nuits-Saint-Georges boasts of numerous highly-reputed Premiers Crus in the appellation, the furthest south in the Côte de Nuits. Of the appellation’s 318 hectares, 143 are classed as premier cru. The Nuit Saint-Georges climats attest to the centuries-long history the region carries. Founded by Henri Gouges at the beginning of the 20th century across 14.5 hectares, the domain is now managed by his two grandsons, Pierre and Christian. To make their production more eco-friendly, part of the vineyard has supplementary grass added to it. Selective yields, a meticulous sorting process and an 18-month maturation in oak barrels produce a wine that respects the typicity of each terroir.
Founded by Henri Georges at the beginning of the 20th century on 14.50 ha of vines at Nuit Saint Georges, the domain is managed today by his two grandsons, Pierre and Christian. For environmental reasons, some of the vineyards have grassed alleys. Yield selection and grape sorting, followed by 18 months of maturing in oak barrels, produce wines that are characteristic of their terroir. The domain has experienced a real stylistic revolution over recent years. It used to produce the most concentrated and tannic wines from this cold and late terroir. When young, the wines could be austere, but with a huge ageing potential of over 30 years. Keeping this immense potential, they are now more focused on finesse, which is a great development for this exceptional domain.
