The Côte de Nuits In Your Glass(es)Wines from the Côte de Nuits are easy to pin down. Reds dominate. They are full of black fruit (apart from those of Chambolle), they are finessed (except when the provenance is Nuits-St-Georges) and as Grand Crus they are distinguished (unless they come from lower third of Clos Vougeot). In comparison to Côte de Beaune wines, those from Nuits show firmer tannins and possess greater density, and may require more time in bottle. They are worthy of, even in need of, cellaring…but only a few. Clear as mud?
