Robert Parker

The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Evocelles is one of the highlights of the range, opening in the glass with scents of cassis, smoked meats, rich soil tones, spices and dried flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, lively and nicely concentrated, with bright acids and fine depth at the core.

Domaine de la Vougeraie

Nathalie and Jean-Charles Boisset's Domaine de La Vougeraie is a tapestry of treasured vineyards, woven together from acquisitions and the family's own inheritance. Its roots trace back to 1964 when their father purchased the Les Evocelles plot in his hometown of Gevrey-Chambertin. The subsequent decades saw expansions to Vougeot and the Côte de Beaune. By 1996, the collection further broadened near Beaune, and eventually circled back to Vougeot with the acquisition of the illustrious monopole, Le Clos Blanc, renowned for its radiant golden wines. Thus, in a journey that felt like a natural homecoming, Domaine de la Vougeraie was birthed in 1999. Named after the family residence, La Vougeraie, it signifies the lineage of Jean-Claude and Claudine Boisset and their vision carried forward by their children, Nathalie and Jean-Charles. The heart of this domain beats in Vougeot. Throughout its evolution, the Domaine's commitment to excellence and passion has remained unwavering.
