A trek throught the Premier Crus of Nuits-St-Georges

 

We often speak about the different sections of Nuits-St-Georges and how distinct they are. With no Grand Crus (at least for the moment) the commune relies on 41 Premier Crus for its reputation. 

 

These vineyards fall into three sectors. At the far south, in Premeaux-Prissey, are ten Premier Crus. In my opinion these are in general the least interesting wines. They can be lean and tannic and much care is required to ensure the wines remain balanced.

 

The second sector is just south of the village of Nuits-St-Georges. The wines produced here are rich and powerful. They are naturally tannic but have the fruit weight to ensure balance is not an issue. Les St-Georges and Vaucrains have applied for elevation to Grand Cru status. In good vintages there is a valid argument. Time will tell.

 

At the far north on the Vosne-Romanee border are the third group. The wines here are finer and more aromatic combining characteristics of Nuits and Vosne. These are popular and quite charming with more spice than the vineyards to the south.

 

In Nuits-St-Georges, perhaps more than anywhere else, a knowledge of the vineyards is worth its weight in gold.

 

Our Premier Crus of Nuits-St-Georges 2016 Dinner features 12 different vineyards from these two top sectors. The wines come from 4 different producers. It is quite a superb array of wines. To view a map of the vineyards of Nuits-St-Georges click here.

 

The dinner will be at Yagiz in South Yarra. We only have 12 seats available so please book in quickly.
