The commune produces almost exclusively red wines however there is a limited production of whites. The Nuits-Saint-Georges red wines are robust and elegant, they require some years of aging to reflect the finest expressions of the Pinot Noir.

Very pretty red with spice, dried meat and dark fruit. Medium body and light tannins that are precise and focused. Shows tension. Just before bottling.
