Cote de Nuits

The Cote de Nuits is the northern half of the Cote d’Or wine region in Burgundy (the southern half being the Cote de Beaune). It specializes in red wines made predominantly from Pinot Noir, the most famous and expensive of which come from the Grand Cru vineyards of Vosne-Romanee and Chambolle-Musigny. Roughly 95% of all wine produced in the Cote de Nuits comes from a single variety: Pinot Noir. The district is widely viewed as the ‘spiritual home’ of Pinot Noir, a reputation strongly reinforced by such stellar wines as Romanee-Conti Grand Cru.
