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.
