Winemaker's Notes

Founded by the monks of Cîteaux Abbey in 1110, Clos du Vougeot remains the true heart of Burgundy wine. It is both a vineyard and a wine, a historic monument and a certain image of France. This temple of wine is a work of patience, resplendent after nearly a millenium of human effort and nature's graces.

Truly charming, slightly vanilla at first, then moving towards aromas of fresh raspberries of great purity, then notes of musk and soft spices.

Palate: The mouth is sumptuous, possessing an extraordinary velvetiness. The palate is rich in aromas - red fruits, then cinnamon, then butterscotch - almost creme brulee. Almost infinite length.

Critical Acclaim

"From a parcel at the top of the Clos de Vougeot slope, this wine shows fine concentration and rich tannins. It has a velvet allure that allows the sweet fruits to shine, but then reveals solid tannins. Black fruits, wood, spice and fresh acidity all sit well in the mix."
93 Points

"Like blackberry confit, this is ripe and polished. There are ample tannins for support, and this has freshness and fine length. Should come forward soon. Best from 2011 through 2020. 451 cases made."
91 Points

"Vougeraie also has another, much less well located .35 ha parcel close to the main road of RN 74 that was being declassified into a Vougeot 1er but for the first time in 2002 was incorporated into the final blend). Aromatically reserved if no longer taciturn, this displays plenty of earth and underbrush suffusing the somber pinot fruit though the rich, full and impressively scaled flavors offer excellent complexity and fine underlying material as the finish is almost surprisingly supple, even elegant and it is both balanced and harmonious. This required several hours of aeration before it showed at its best. 91/2015+"
