From Sacred Grounds to Your Glass: Côte de Nuits, Where Pinot Noir Touches Perfection


Last updated: February 29, 2024


The world’s greatest Pinot Noir is made in the Côte de Nuits: virile, complex, and long-lived. Indeed, the northern half of the Côte d’Or is red wine country, with only a tiny volume of white vines planted in the zone. Centuries ago, Benedictine and Cistercian monks determined that the marlstone of the Côte de Nuits, rich in calcium carbonate and minerals, would allow Pinot Noir to express its most profound and complete form, featuring a perfume that can only be described as positively ethereal. It turns out they were right – the Grand Crus of Vosne-Romanée and Chambolle-Musigny come as close to sheer perfection as is possible in the world of wine. And for that, the market will stand almost any price.
