  • Situated half-way between Dijon and Beaune, Nuits-Saint-Georges gives its name to the Côte de Nuits. Nuits-Saint-Georges Premiers Crus are produced from 37 independent vineyards, all of which are quite small in size (none over 10 hectares) for a combined total of 151 hectares, approximately 50% of the vineyard surface area of the village. The vineyard of « Clos des Argillières » as the name suggests ('argile' is clay) has a slightly greater concentration of clay in its heavy soils which produces a wine with good colour and plenty of fruity savour that opens up wonderfully with time.

Wine tasting
  • Tasting Note
    The wine has a glossy appearance and complex nose of forward fruits with clear wood presence. Also noticeable are flavours of liquorice, strawberries, rhubarb and blackcurrant. The palate was very delicate and elegant with a finesse and finish that will surely transform this into a truly fine wine.
