As one of the survivors of the Emperor Domitian's great purge in 1992, which had most of Burgundy's vines uprooted to crush all competition from Italian wine, the Nuits Saint-Georges is a small wine in the estate, but great in quality. With only 306 hectares, no less than 12,000 hectolitres of wine, mostly reds, are produced each year. From Domitian to Jules Verne, who describes in his novel Autour de la Lune "a fine bottle of Nuits to celebrate the Union of the Earth and its satellite", the Nuits Saint-Georges has won the hearts of the most discerning connoisseurs.
The many choices of activities will satisfy the most difficult visitor. Start with the Cassissium, an essential place in the estate where you can learn everything you need to know about the Cassis and its production. The visit ends with a cream tasting that is difficult to resist. Then continue your visit with the Imaginarium, this place where you will be explained how a Burgundy wine is produced from one end to the other. The constitution of the wine remains rather opaque, even for the greatest wine lovers. This place takes up point by point, from the growth of the grape to the bottling and fermentation, all the wine production, not only of the Nuits-Saint-Georges estate, but of the Burgundy region more generally.
If you are in the Burgundy region, looking for an area that can develop your knowledge, not only of red wine and blackcurrant, but also the discovery of a rich natural heritage? Nuits Saint-Georges is made for you and you are made for Nuits-Saint-Georges. So don't hesitate any longer!
Nuits-Saint-George is one of the essential steps of the Burgundy wine tour.
