"The vines of the Côte de Nuits and Hautes Côtes de Nuits stretch over 20km from north to south. This area is the center for the region’s Grands Crus. Mainly reputed for its red wines, it also produces a select few whites...
The reputation of the appellations of the Côte de Nuits is firmly established. Some have even gone so far as to name this exceptional terroir the Champs-Elysées of the Bourgogne winegrowing region.
This sophisticated pseudonym also explains the reality of the terrain. Between Dijon and Corgoloin, the wines grow along a narrow strip of hillside that is around 20km long and in parts, just 200 meters wide." - Bourgogne Wines
