Les Saint-Georges

Les Saint-Georges is one of the most highly-regarded of Nuits-Saint-Georges’s 41 Premier Cru vineyards and, in the absence of any Grand Crus in the commune, makes some of the most sought-after wines in the area. The 7.5 hectare (18 acre) vineyard is planted to Pinot Noir, which is expressed here as a complex, rich red wine.

The Saint-Georges site is located about halfway between Premeaux-Prissey village and Nuits-Saint-Georges itself, right on the commune boundary between the two settlements and roughly 1km (0.6 miles) southeast of Nuits-Saint-Georges town. It has been famous for many centuries as a source of excellent wines and is considered by many to be of Grand Cru quality.

There are those within the Nuits-Saint-Georges wine community who are putting forward a case for the vineyard’s promotion to Grand Cru status.
