Aux Allots covers 7.96ha of vineyards. There is a rich clay soil here with plenty of water from small springs – probably the name derives from a reference to water (à l’eau ?) – providing ample-bodied red Pinot Noir Nuits St Georges wines. This type of soil does better in drier years when it retains water, but would suffer in a wetter vintage.
Leading producers include: Domaines Remoriquet, Leroy and Bertrand Machard de Gramont
