The area is made up of tiny villages surrounded by a combination of flat and sloping vineyards on the Côte’s eastern aspect, sheltered to a degree from the rain and weather brought by the prevailing westerly winds. The very best wines, from the grand cru vineyards, are usually from the middle and higher part of the slopes where the vines have the most exposure to sunshine and the best drainage, while the premier cru wines come from the lower, slightly less favourably exposed slopes. The comparatively simpler village wines are produced on the flat land nearer the villages. The Côte De Nuits houses 24 out of the 25 grand cru red wine appellations in Burgundy, whereas all of the region's grand cru white wines are from the Côte De Beaune.
