Les Perrieres is a 6.25-acre Premier Cru vineyard in Nuits-Saints-Georges, in Burgundy’s Cote de Nuits. It is in the central part of of the appellation on its eastern edge. Because there are no Grand Cru vineyards in Nuits-Saints-Georges, the appellation’s considerable reputation rests on its excellent Premier Crus. The vineyard is steep and extremely rocky. Burgundy writer Clive Coates notes that Les Perrieres is “lighter, minerally, but elegant.”
