Winemaker's Notes:

Delicate ruby color flecked with pink; beautifully bright. Expressive nose, opening with spicy notes (oak bark and humus) that evolve after a few minutes into balsamic tones. The attack is forward with a supple, round texture supported by good acidity, ripe tannins and a nice appearance. Flavors of fresh red fruits dominate, with subtle notes of sour cherries. The finish is clean with medium length.

Try serving with poultry in a mushroom cream sauce.

About Domaine de la Vougeraie:

Le Domaine de la Vougeraie was founded in 1999, uniting under a single signature the 91 acres of vineyards owned by the Boisset family. Our vineyards are in 30 different appellations in the Côte d'Or, with two-thirds in the Côte de Nuits and one-third in the Côte de Beaune. Our first vineyard, purchased by Jean-Claude and Claudine Boisset in 1964, is the single vineyard Gevrey-Chambertin "Les Evocelles", and our latest jewel, the Vougeot Premier Cru "Le Clos Blanc de Vougeot" Monopole is part of our 24 acres in the Vougeot appellation. Pierre Vincent, our winemaker, focuses on the pure expression of Burgundian terroir using organic farming and biodynamics, respecting the environment and making truly unique wines. We are proud to announce that 100% of our vineyards are certified organic by Ecocert since the 2007 harvest.
