In general, the village wines of the Côte de Nuits are fuller, earthier and more complex and tannic than those of the Côte de Beaune, due to the chalky clay content of the soil of the Côte de Nuits. Jadot’s Côte de Nuits comes from the wines of small partner growers in Fixin, Brochon, Prémeaux-Prissey, Comblanchien and Corgoloin. The Pinot Noir grapes are fermented in tanks for up to 4 weeks, and then the wine is matured in oak barrels for 10 months.

Tasting Note

Medium-bodied with concentrated fruit, this wine offers aromas and flavors of ripe black and red berries and earth. It has silky tannins that allow the wine to be consumed without cellaring, up to three to five years from the vintage.

Food Pairing

Serve with roasted or marinated meats or cheeses.
