Winemaker 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

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
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.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
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.

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+

Domaine de la Vougeraie Winery Video

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.

Red Wine

Celebrated as some of the best wine in the universe, red wine from Burgundy, otherwise known as red Burgundy, is Pinot noir. In fact Burgundy is the birthplace of Pinot noir and the source of the planet’s most sensual, delicate, valuable and sought-after Pinot noir wines.

Understanding and enjoying red Burgundy can stay simple, with a basic knowledge of its subregions, become more intricate by dialing down to the villages and vineyards or become a life-long passion, exploring climats (plots of vines), vintages and the post French Revolution land ownership laws. In any case, a fine red Burgundy will display refined nuances of black currant, red fruit, earth, spice, alluring floral aromatics and have great elegance, complexity and longevity.

Most famous, praised and collected of Burgunday are those from the Côte d'Or. Hundreds of millions of years ago, the area now called Côte d'Or was under a warm ocean whose sea floor has, over time, shifted and decomposed into various layers of limestone, sandstone and clay interspersed with ancient fossilized sea creatures. This is what is referred to as the famous escarpment upon which all of the highly sought-after Grands Crus and Premiers Crus vineyards can be found. In other words, from north to south, the best vineyards of Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Vosne-Romanée, Flagey-Echezeaux, Nuits-St-Georges, Aloxe-Corton, Pommard and Volnay follow the path of this ancient sea bed.
