Tasting Notes

Enveloped by the mystique of the adjacent Clos de Vougeot castle, Clos Blanc stands as a beacon in the heartland of renowned reds. This luminous jewel of the vineyards, since its inaugural 1110 vintage, has offered its sacrosanct golden nectar to its spiritual forebears, the pioneering monks of Cîteaux. Described as "La Vigne Blanche," it glistens like a diamond surrounded by rubies...

Robert Parker

The 2018 Vougeot 1er Cru Le Clos Blanc de Vougeot has turned out nicely, wafting from the glass with aromas of pear, peach, orange oil and a generous but not overpowering application of toasty new oak. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, its textural attack segues into a tangy, vibrant mid-palate, concluding with a saline finish. As readers will remember, small percentages of Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc complement Chardonnay in this cuvée.

Wine Spectator

Smoky, matchstick and lime blossom aromas mark this sleek white. Apple, lemon pie and baking spice flavors hold center court, while it finishes with subtle length. Overall, this reveals harmony and intensity on a delicate frame.

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.
