Region Nuits-St-Georges

Originally known as Nuits, then Nuits-sous-Beaune, in 1892 it opted to append it’s name to one of its most important vineyards, Les St.Georges. The most obvious though, is the lending of it’s name to the entire Cote which fittingly ends there (or starts if coming from the south). The commune has no Grand Cru vineyards, a diplomatic decision made by the mayor of the time Henri Gouges in preferring not to single out any vineyard for the highest status. The appellation falls into two parts, divided by the town itself with the northern section extending to Vosne-Romanée, and the southern section which is partly in Nuits-Saint-Georges and partly in Premeaux. The wines vary according to their provenance - The wines with the most finesse are in the north (associated with Vosne), the richest and most sought-after are those just south of Nuits-St Georges with those lighter in body, in the south around the village of Prémeaux. “And lastly, to crown the repast, Ard

“And lastly, to crown the repast, Ardan had brought out a fine bottle of Nuits, which was found ‘by chance’ in the provision-box. The three friends drank to the union of the earth and her satellite.” 

Around the Moon by Jules Verne

The book and passage served as inspiration for the Apollo15 astronauts, who in 1971 christened the crater closest to their landing site, Saint Georges. At the base of the crater, along with a bit of Texan soil, they placed a label of Nuits-Saint-Georges cuvée Terre-Lune.

Winery DOMAINE HENRI GOUGES

Domaine Henri Gouges is arguably the most renowned domaine in Nuits St. Georges. The Gouges family have been vignerons in Nuits for generations and have run the current domaine since 1919. Today Pierre and Christian Gouges, grandsons of Henri, run the 14.5 hectare domaine with the next generation now joining in. The wines are typically powerful and structured in style, taking time in the bottle to unfold and reveal their full potential.
