Half way between Dijon and Beaune, and with an eastern exposure, the vines of Nuits-Saint-Georges extend for 6 kilometres and cover 160 hectares of the village appellation. The local variation in soils, exposure and location produce a great diversity of terroir. The area as a whole is bisected by the little Meuzin river and its valley, and by the village itself.
This climat is located at the top of the slope. Chaignot is diminutive of the Burgundian word Châne for the ancient French noun Châgne "oak". oak-trees thrived up there.
