Joseph Drouhin Nuits Saint Georges
พันธุ์องุ่นผสม (Grape Blended)
Site: the appellation is elongated, with two different sections, north and south, separated by a little stream that crosses the town. The hillside is quite steep, but the vineyards have an excellent east exposure.
Histoire & tradition: an emblematic wine, closely linked to the gastronomy of Burgundy. Great chefs, such as Escoffier, and Brillat-Savarin (the famous cook-book writer), have praised these wines very highly.
Soil: there are outcroppings of hard chalk in many places. The northern part of Nuits, close to Vosne, produces wines of great finesse. The southern part, with its rockier soil, gives powerful and long lasting wines.
