Côte de Nuits Village Wines
Jadot’s village wines are grown on an extension of the slopes where the Premiers and Grands Crus are situated. Among the Côte de Nuits villages, Gevrey-Chambertin is the most renowned. Here, Pinot Noir has been refined to a pinnacle of expression. Nuits-Saint-Georges is the southernmost commune of the Côte de Nuits and produces some of its sturdiest and longest-lived wines. Other Louis Jadot village wines from the Côte de Nuits are: Marsannay (red and white) Fixin (white) Chambolle-Musigny (red) Vosne-Romanée (red) Côte de Nuits Villages (red and white)
