Côte de Nuits

About

The Côte de Nuits forms the northern half of the Côte d’Or, running from the outskirts of Dijon, through seven famous communes, to the villages of Prémeaux and Corgoloin, south of Nuits-Saint-Georges.

The region is around 20 kilometres long and between 200 and 800 metres wide. It covers 3,600 hectares. Driving south from Dijon, looking to the right, you will see slopes adorned with vineyards, broken up periodically by barren, rocky outcrops. Brilliant green in summer, intense gold in autumn and forebodingly barren in winter.

The Côte de Nuits, with few exceptions, is red wine country. It is, quite simply, home to some of the greatest Pinot Noirs in the world.

Gevrey-Chambertin

Gevrey-Chambertin is a large commune comprising 410 hectares, stretching from Brochon in the north, to Morey-Saint-Denis in the south. A mix of terroirs, with patches of limestone contributing to the complexity of the best Gevreys and to the great variety of styles. Only red wines may be labelled Gevrey-Chambertin.

Domaine Joseph Roty

Domaine Roty is a tiny estate in the heart of Gevrey-Chambertin whose hallmark is elegance, richness and underlying, understated power.

 

Domaine Roty releases its wines once in bottle, so our upcoming standalone offer will be of the 2017 vintage.

Morey-Saint-Denis

After Vougeot, Morey-Saint-Denis is the smallest village of the Côte de Nuits, with just 150 hectares of vines. Perhaps less well known than its neighbours, Gevrey-Chambertin to the north and Chambolle-Musigny to the south, it displays some of the power of Gevrey, as well as a kinship with Bonnes-Mares, which starts just beyond the southern wall of Clos de Tart. The grands crus here are Clos des Lambrays, Clos de la Roche, Clos Saint-Denis and Clos de Tart. The abundance of walled vineyards echoes the self-contained nature of this alluring but enigmatic village.

Clos de Tart

The walled vineyard of Clos de Tart is situated at the very heart of Morey-Saint-Denis, one of four grands crus within the village and, under sole ownership, a monopole. Its sloping 7.53 hectares overlook the village.

 

Corney & Barrow is Clos de Tart’s exclusive UK agent. The 2018 vintage will be released in April 2020.

Domaine Perrot-Minoit

We have worked with Christophe Perrot-Minot since the 2016 vintage, making this our third vintage release.

 

The wines will be released as a separate offer.

CHAMBOLLE-MUSIGNY

As well-worn as the expression is, Chambolle-Musigny is the quintessential iron fist in a velvet glove. Perfumed and delicate on the nose, before making its presence felt on the palate, Chambolle at its best reconciles the ephemeral and the earthly. Its two grands crus are Musigny and Bonnes-Mares, which are found at opposite ends of the village. The principal premier cru is Les Amoureuses, which lies on the other side of the Route des Grands Crus.

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé is the largest holder of the Musigny vineyard by some distance, owning 7.12 hectares of the total 10.85.

 

The 2018s will be released in March 2020. Corney & Barrow is the exclusive UK agent of Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé.

VOUGEOT

The Clos de Vougeot is a historically important 50 hectare plot, bestowed with grand cru status in its entirety. Beneath this rather broad brush approach to classification lie nuances of quality, meaning here even more than elsewhere in Burgundy, ‘grower is everything’.

Corney and Barrow

Château de la Tour

Château de la Tour, established in 1890, is the largest proprietor of the Clos de Vougeot. Family owned, it boasts six hectares of vines, some 12% of the appellation.

 

Corney & Barrow represents these wines exclusively in the UK and Singapore. They were released in December – click here to see the offer.

VOSNE-ROMANÉE

The most prestigious address in the Côte de Nuits? La Romanée-Conti is the bull’s-eye of this charmed village, with a gaggle of grand cru vineyards clustered around it, including La Tâche, Les Gaudichots, La Grande Rue, La Romanée, Les Richebourgs and Romanée-Saint-Vivant. The adjacent commune of Flagey Échezeaux houses the Échezeaux vineyards before giving way to Clos de Vougeot to the north.

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti

Located in the wonderfully named Rue du Temps Perdu, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti is part of the very fabric of Burgundy. It is often referred to as simply “the Domaine”, the definite article sufficing for a property to which so many aspire.

 

The wines of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti are released once bottled, meaning 2017 will be the next en primeur vintage release, in late January 2020. Due to very high levels of demand, these wines are on strict allocation.

Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux

This domaine is going places. We were appointed exclusive UK agents in the 2016 vintage, making the 2018s our third annual release. Today, it is run by Charles Lachaux, the sixth generation, alongside his mother Florence Arnoux-Lachaux.

 

In addition, Charles has this year started a new négociant project, called Charles Lachaux. We released the inaugural 2018 vintage in December. Click here to see the offer.

NUITS-SAINT-GEORGES

Nuits-Saint-Georges is the most southerly of the famous Côte de Nuits appellations. It is also the town from which the Côte de Nuits takes its name. As is the way in Burgundy, the town of Nuits appended the name of the best-known local vineyard, the premier cru Les Saint-Georges. Nuits-Saint-Georges has extremely varied soils and aspects, comprising a substantial 300 hectares of vines, 142 of which are premiers crus. This is an appellation without grands crus, perhaps surprisingly given its renown. Known for red wines, there are in fact seven hectares dedicated to white wine production.

Domaine de l’Arlot

Domaine de l’Arlot is a fourteen hectare property in the commune of Prémeaux, just south of the town of Nuits-Saint-Georges. It has been run along biodynamic lines since 2003.

 

The flagship here is Clos de l’Arlot, a wholly owned monopole adjacent to the domaine, planted with both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Domaine Gilles Jourdan

Gilles Jourdan established his eponymous domaine in 1998, having looked after the family holdings since 1970, whilst making wine at Bichot in Beaune.

 

Gilles’ chai is tiny. A central garage-like space is crammed with bottling equipment and a small tasting table, with a bottle cellar to one side and a barrel cellar to the other. Gilles has 40 pickers to call upon at harvest.
