Nuits Saint Georges
|Type of Wine||
Les Perrieres is a Premier Cru climat of the Nuits-Saint-Georges appellation in the Cote de Nuits. As such, wines made exclusively from grapes grown within the site, and in accordance with the Nuits-Saint-Georges appellation laws, may claim the title Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru. The wines may also be labeled with the climat name featured as part of the appellation title. The region also hosts small plantings of an extremely rare, light-skinned mutation of Pinot Noir. The grape goes by a few names including Pinot Blanc, Pinot Musigny and Pinot Gouges after the winemaker who cultivated cuttings of it. The very limited production of this white wine also carries the Les Perrieres climat on its label.
The Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru vineyards line the mid-slope of the Cote d’Or escarpment, from Vosne-Romanee in the north to Premeaux-Prissey in the south. Their flow is broken only by the streets and houses of Nuits-Saint-Georges itself, in the narrow valley of the Meuzin river.
The Les Perrieres site is located between Premeaux-Prissey village and Nuits-Saint-Georges itself, on the mid-slopes just east of the Les Saint-Georges vineyard. On the slopes immediately above is a large quarry that lays bare the limestone sub-strata for which Burgundy is so renowned.
Les Perrieres in Nuits-Saint-Georges should not be confused with similarly named vineyards around Burgundy.
