Description : Situated half-way between Dijon and Beaune, Nuits-Saint-Georges gives its name to the Côte de Nuits. The commune produces almost exclusively red wines however there is a limited production of whites. The vineyard of "Les Crots" looks due East and as it is at the top of an escarpment the vines are worked using a terrace system. The soil is shallow and stony. The wines of Nuits-Saint-Georges are well-known for being solid and age-worthy and "Les Crots" does not disappoint us in this respect.
