Winemaker's Notes:

The Vougeot appellation covers 168 acres, 126 of which are taken up by the Clos de Vougeot. The Clos Blanc de Vougeot is just in front of the Chateau, below the western half of the Clos de Vougeot's north wall.

First nose is stunning. Powerful, complex, managing to be both fruity and mineral.

Possesses richness of taste, with dry fruits, hazelnut and cashew nuts. The opulence of the mouth shows great acidity, with a distinguished and refreshing finish.

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.
