The Côte de Nuits is the northern half of the Cote d’Or wine region in Burgundy (the southern half being the Côte de Beaune). It specialises in red wines made predominantly from Pinot Noir, which accounts for around 95 percent of all wine produced here. The most famous and expensive bottles come from the grand cru vineyards of Vosne-Romanée and Chambolle-Musigny. The former is known for rich, silky red wines, while the latter generally produces more elegant expressions of Pinot Noir.

In the northern half of the district, Gevrey-Chambertin is noted for full-bodied red wines and boasts nine grand cru vineyards. Morey-Saint-Denis wines are similar in style; it is the site of five grand crus. Vougeot is most strongly associated with the walled Clos de Vougeot grand cru. Flagey-Echezeaux is a hamlet next to Vosne-Romanée with a pair of grand crus. The principal town within the district is Nuits-Saint-Georges. This was known as Nuits until it adopted the name of its most prominent vineyard, Les Saint-Georges, in the late 19th Century. Its wine zone contains no grand crus, but a number of well-regarded Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru sites.

Marsannay (known for its rosés) and Fixin are genrally regarded as secondary communes in the Côte de Nuits. They lie between Gevrey-Chambertin and the city of Dijon.

2022 is undoubtedly a great red wine vintage. In contrast to the nightmarish 2021 growing season, this was a much more relaxed, stress-free affair.

In the Côte de Nuits, most growers began picking around the very end of August or the first few days of September and the quality of grapes at harvest was excellent, yielding extraordinarily concentrated juice.

The resulting wines are perfectly balanced, with no one element dominating any other. The aromatic and flavour profiles are firmly red-fruited, with an expressive floral character that invites you in and holds you in raptures. Across the key appellations of Gevrey Chambertin, Nuits St Georges and Morey St Denis the reds are pretty and open, even at the Grand Cru level.
