Tasting Notes

The Clos Blanc de Vougeot vineyard holds a remarkable story. Since the era of Cîteaux monks, this land has embraced white grapes, giving birth to the ancestors of the revered Chardonnay. Uniquely, even during the turbulence of the French Revolution, Clos Blanc de Vougeot held its ground as a monopole, resisting division. Lovingly tended by luminaries like Jules Ouvrard and Jules Régnier in the 19th century and cherished by L’Héritier-Guyot in the 20th, it now rests in the hands of Domaine de la Vougeraie, the proud sole custodian of this historical monopole.

Robert Parker

The 2016 Vougeot 1er Cru Le Clos Blanc de Vougeot felt more austere on the nose compared to the Puligny Champ Gain. The palate is nicely balanced but maybe missing the complexity of that aforementioned premier cru. I appreciate the dab of spice on the finish, but I would like more personality to come through in bottle.

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.
