Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru "Les Crots"
Côte de Nuits
AOC Premier Cru
The Nuits-Saint-Georges AOC covers two communes: Nuits-Saint-Georges and Prémeaux-Prissey in the direction of Beaune. Nuits-Saint-Georges has given its name to the Côte de Nuits and is almost exclusively dedicated to the production of red wines made from Pinot Noir grapes. The diversity of exposure and soil types between the vineyards located to the south and to the north of Nuits-Saint-Georges result in considerably diverse wines. “Les Crots” is located in the southern part of Nuits-Saint-Georges. The name, "Les Crots" (a dialectal variant of “creux” meaning "hollow"), refers to the relief of this very steep slope whose counter-slope forms a large hollow.
This wine’s lovely, distinctive, fruity nose boasts intense notes of red berries, spices and tobacco. The palate is generous with well-balanced fullness, robustness and flavour. The finish is long and intensely flavourful.
Enjoy this Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru with all types of red meats, dishes in sauce, marinated game and mature cheeses.
