The appellation

The vineyards, solidly seated on middle Jurassic sedimentary formations, are cut in two by the town, where the Meuzin stream flows out of the Combe de la Serrée. To the north lies Vosne-Romanée, to the south, Premeaux-Prissey. Being exposed to a variety of directions, the characteristic tastes vary, with more rustic wines to the south of the village. Nuits wines are only at their best after several years, and are ideal for patient collectors.

The citadel, founded in around 1000 AD, derives its name from the Nuicthons, or walnut trees, which were abundant nearby. The strong ramparts protected its inhabitants, nobles, wine growers and religious communities. In the 18th century the town started to export its wine, and several wine merchants sprung up in the following century. The Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin was created here in the 1930s. To help protect the wine industry, badly hit by the Great Depression, they created the Saint-Vincent Tournante wine festival and the Tastevinage seal of approval.
