The small town of Nuits-Saint-Georges is the commercial center of the wine region of Côte de Nuits. It employs many large merchants, such as Joseph and Feveley Moyar.
The vineyards are located on the slopes of the region and only planted Pinot Noir. In Nuits-Saint-Georges and nearby Prem Prissy no Grand Cru vineyards class, but a lot of Premiers Crus, some wines which almost reach the level of Grand Cru, including "Clos de L'Arlo." All these wines are quite bright, but with a balanced taste, sweet note and oak aroma with a hint of smoke.
