Côte de Nuits-Villages encompasses the villages of Premeaux-Prissey, Comblanchien, and Corgoloin just south of Nuits-Saint-Georges. The vineyards benefit from east-facing hill-slopes which act as a sun-trap to create maximum ripeness in the grapes. The complex soil composition of these villages include varying proportions of marl and shale clays which produce wines of great character and charm. Maison Louis Latour's Côte de Nuits-Villages is an excellent introduction to the wines of the Côte de Nuits.
