  • Woody

This parcel of Premier Cru "Les Saint Georges" is one of the most famous in the appellation area: demarcated since the year 1000, it is undoubtedly the first plot planted in Nuits Saint Georges.

With a deep purplish red colour, this powerful, tannic and at the same time refined wine is very representative of Nuits St Georges, one of the most beautiful red wine appellations of the Côte de Nuits in Burgundy.

Coming from the opulent 2016 vintage, it offers power, remarkable balance and silky tannins thanks to the perfect mastery of the winemaking of the Remoriquet estate.

This fresh and pleasant Nuits St Georges Premier Cru will have notes of blackcurrant, cherry and pepper in its youth. As it ages, it will bring a complexity worthy of the greatest red wines of Burgundy. Its aromas can evolve towards spicier and then animal notes (leather, game).
The palate is very round, the tannin smooth and melted

Round and opulent, long in the mouth, it is very representative of the wines of the appellation: structured and powerful, it can be accompanied by a very wide range of dishes, grilled meats or meats in sauce (Côte de Boeuf/Duck breast) but also game with hair.

Serving temperature: 15 to 16°

Nuits Saint Georges

Wine Characteristics

The appellation falls into two parts, divided by the town itself. The northern portion extends as far as the border of Vosne-Romanée, and the southern section lies partly in Nuits-Saint-Georges and partly in Premeaux.
Corresponding differences are observed in the wines. Their colour is an intense crepuscular crimson with a hint of mauve. The nose often features rose and liquorice. The young red wine has aromas of cherry, strawberry and blackcurrant, and when matured, leather, truffle, fur, game. Notes of macerated fruits (prune) complete the picture. Muscular and vigorous, chewy and full-bodied, its structure is both well built and well-balanced and it is long in the mouth. It is most fully enjoyed after several years’ laying down which rounds it out and underlines its sensuality and breeding.
The (rare) whites have a strong gold colour. They are firm and usually heady with a bouquet of brioche and sometimes honey, underpinned by white flowers.

Wine Steward’s Tip

Red: powerful and strongly-built, this is the wine that confers on the Côte de Nuits its noble reputation of a sturdy character. Its normal partners would be any meat that is at once full-flavoured and virile (roast lamb, rib steak, or breast of fattened duck), as the wine firmly coats and envelops its fibrous texture. Feathered game, similarly, responds to the charm of the wild and animal aromas which the wine develops with age. Sophisticated diners will also serve it with certain fish dishes such as carp in red-wine sauce. Cheeses: soft centred cheeses in the style of Époisses, Langres or Soumaintrain.
Serving temperature: 15 to 16°C.

White: this seldom met-with wine has the breeding and opulence required to partner with grilled sea-fish and grilled or cheese-topped crustaceans.
Serving temperature: 12 to 13°C.


Nuits-Saint-Georges is a likeable and lively town with a centuries-old history of winemaking. It gives its name to the Côte de Nuits, and its patron saint, Saint Georges, gives his name to their most famous wine. Its AOC, which dates from September 1936, includes the commune of Premeaux-Prissey in the appellation. Most of the wines grown here are Pinot Noir, but there are some plots planted with Chardonnay. The Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin, Bourgogne’s most famous wine-brotherhood, was founded here in 1934.


The soils in the northern sector derive from pebbly alluvium washed down from up-slope, or, in the low-lying parts, silty deposits from the river Meuzin. In the southern sector the alluvia at the base of the slope originate in the combe of Vallerots where there are deep marly-limestone soils, while at the top of the slope, the rock is almost at the surface. Exposures are mostly to the East or South-East.

Domaine Remoriquet

Domaine Remoriquet, a 10-hectare family estate, managed by Henri and Gilles, is located in the heart of the Côte de Nuits in Burgundy, in Nuits Saint Georges.

The Remoriquet family was already producing wine for the monks of the Abbey of Citeaux. It is a fan of dense and deep wines, on magnificent plots such as the Premiers Crus Audessus des Malconsorts and the Saints-Georges. Vosne Romanée Premiers Crus are also of very high standards, as are regional appellations such as Burgundy Pinot Noir or Coteaux Bourguignons.
