1978 Nuits St Georges Jaboulet Vercherre 75cl
A bottle of 1978 Nuits St Georges from Jaboulet Vercherre .
Nuits Saint Georges wine is produced in the communes of Nuits Saint Georges and Premeaux Prissey in the Côte de Nuits subregion of Burgundy. Red wines from Pinot Noir dominate production to around 97 per cent of the total, with the balance being white wines made from Chardonnay. The word 'Nuits' has nothing to do with the night, but comes from the Latin for walnuts, Nutium. In 2008 there were 306 hectares of vineyard in production for Nuits Saint Georges wine at Village and Premier Cru level.

We cannot guarantee that the contents of this bottle will be free from the effects of age, cork taint, oxidation or other faults. Older bottles often contain sediment.
