Laboure-Roi Nuits St. Georges France 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Nuits-Saint-Georges is the second largest appellation in the Côte de Nuits - the largest is Gevrey-Chambertin, but such is its fame that the northern half of the Côte d'Or has borrowed its name. There are 650 acres of vineyards in the commune of Nuits-Saint-Georges, with the vines of Vosne-Romanée to the north, and 133 acres to the south in the commune of Premeaux. 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.
