Nuits-Saint-Georges “Les Charbonnières”

Nuits-Saint-Georges “Les Charbonnières” bottle

Halfway between Dijon and Beaune, and with an easterly exposure, the vineyards of Nuits-Saint-Georges spread over 3 miles, with 395 acres of Village-appelation vines. The range of soils, exposure and locations here creates a great diversity of terroirs. The area is bisected by the valley of the Meuzin river, and the village itself.

Les Charbonnières are located at the southern end of the village, where the altitude is a little lower than in the north. The soil consists mainly of marl, combined with sand and pebbles from the top of the slope. Grape maturity is always excellent here.
