Domaine de la Vougeraie, based in Premeaux just south of Nuits St Georges, was created in 1999 when Jean-Claude Boisset of the Boisset group decided to group together all the vineyard holdings of his various negociant companies acquired over the years. The name comes from the significant holdings – and indeed Jean-Claude Boisset’s home – in the village of Vougeot. The winery is located however in the old Claudine Deschamps (Madame Jean-Claude Boisset) cellars in Prémeaux.

The domaine was put together from the various vineyard holdings which had accrued through the Boisset acquisitions of Burgundian houses over the years. Pascal Marchand was put in charge in 1999, with Bernard Zito in the vineyards, which were farmed biodynamically.

With nearly 40 hectares of vineyard and over 30 different appellations, including six grand crus (Musigny, Bonnes Mares, Clos Vougeot, Charmes Chambertin, Mazoyères, Corton Clos du Roi and Corton Charlemagne), this is one of Burgundy’s leading domaines.

Tasting Notes

94 Points Allen Meadows
A discreet touch of wood allows the exceptionally spicy nose of ultra-fresh red currant and intensely floral scents to be appreciated. Like the Bonnes Mares there is excellent concentration to the tension-filled, detailed and mineral-inflected medium weight plus flavors that display an explosively long and perfectly balanced finish. This is a very classy effort though note well that this is definitely a wine that will need a minimum of 10 years of bottle age and should amply reward twice that.
