Vinous 87 points - (22 hectoliters per hectare produced in 2013, vs. 15 in 2012; picked at 12.5% potential alcohol, according to Vincent): Bright red. Musky, lightly leesy aromas of strawberry and garrigue. Supple red cherry fruit shows an almost liqueur-like ripeness. This rather creamy Pommard finishes with substantial ripe tannins.
87-89 Points (Jan 2015)
This large, south-facing parcel covering about three acres was replanted between 1985 and 1989. The sun-drenched vineyard, ideally situated at the top of the hillside, benefits from an excellent reflection of heat onto the grapes. The Petits Noizons vines grow in a very pebbly, soil, (chalky and often alluvial), of great depth. The results are a relatively powerful wine, with good structure and high quality.
|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.
