The Domaine de la Vougeraie Beaune Blanc assembles several small parcels from the Montée Rouge climat, grown on both sides of a
ruddy, iron-rich coomb. Known by wine growers as "The White Virgin", the south-facing vine has the structure and power of a quality wine that is fat, rich and astounding.
"The 2010 Beaune is rounder and softer than the Cotes de Beaune but with plenty of the trademark 2010 acidity and minerality to back things up. Lemon, crushed rocks and spices wrap around the rich, generous finish.
Range: 90-92 Points "
The Wine Advocate
"Here too there is a note of pain grille that serves as a backdrop for the layered nose of spiced pear, lavender, rose petal and apple. There is impressive intensity to the precise, clean and very crisp light to middle weight flavors that culminate in a balanced and bone dry finish. I really like the sense of energy and this is much better than what one typically finds in villages level Beaune whites, and as such it's worth considering.
"Dense pear and red peach skin flavors give this wine a cool tone. Impacted with fruit, the generous fullness of the wine is balanced by equally rich lemony acidity. The lasting impression is dark and smoky, seeming to hold complexities that will emerge with bottle age."
