Winemaker Notes

Cherries and smoke blends with suggestions of curry spice on the nose; the mouth is filled with cherry jam, black pepper and baking spices. Utterly complex and very cellar-worthy.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Les Bousselots comes from vines planted in 1945 inherited from his maternal grandparents. It has a fragrant bouquet with dark berries infused with subtle forest floor aromas. It builds nicely in the glass. The palate is very well-balanced with crisp tannins, hints of Xmas cake infusing the black fruit with an elegant, very natural finish.
Rating: 88-90

Philippe Gavignet Winery Image
A family domain for four generations, the Philippe Gavignet's domain is located in the town of Nuits Saint Georges, an appellation often known for darker and more tannic reds, right in the heart of Burgundy. The wines have the floral aromas one might associate with the village of Vosne-Romanee and the smooth texture of wines from Morey-St.-Denis.

Nuits-St-Georges Wine

Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

View all products

Inhabiting the bottom end of the northern half of the Côte d’Or, Nuits-St-Georges is a busy, market-driven town and home to many of Burgundy’s negociants. It is also the largest town in the Côte d’Or after Beaune and contributes "nuits" to the name of Côte de Nuits (i.e., the northern half of the Côte d’Or).

The appellation itself is divided into two parts, where in the north it directly borders Vosne-Romanée, the southerly end is the commune of Prémeaux. There are no Grands Crus in this village, though it does have a large number of Premiers Crus.

The best Nuits-St-Georges Pinot Noir are layered with cherry, plum, underbrush and sandalwood. The fruit is sweet, the wine energetic, and the finish long and lush.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
