Domaine de la Vougeraie Bourgogne Rouge ‘Terres de Famille’ 2013
The estate’s ‘Terre’ Bourgogne Pinot Noir is intended to show the grape in all its ardour, delicacy, spirit and sensitivity using parcels at Gilly-lès-Cîteaux, a stone’s throw from the Clos de Vougeot and the estates Vougeot wines, combined with a rustic hint of Côte de Beaune. Vougeot was where the Cistercian monks kept their wine. Bourgogne Terres de Famille is a combination from several parcels, in accordance with strict appellation d’origine contrôlée rules, to arouse the excellence of Pinot Noir. One third of the grapes are from vines on the Côte de Beaune, two thirds from the Côte de Nuits, the domain’s “divine ratio”. Montée Rouge, for example, is one of the best Beaune climats.
Domaine de la Vougeraie was founded in 1998 when the domaines of Claudine Deschamps, Pierre Ponnelle, Louis Voilland and L’Heritier-Guyot were merged. The man behind the venture was Jean-Claude Boisset, whose own considerable holdings meant that Domaine de la Vougeraie became a significant player in the Cote d’Or, with 37 hectares of prime vineyard including seven grand crus to their name.
A family estate uniting a collection of the most prestigious, historical vineyards in Burgundy, the winery strictly adheres to organic and Biodynamic farming in order to achieve a balance between the earth, the plant and humanity, with the goal of drawing the best from the terroir.
