Domaine de la Vougeraie - Nuits Saint Georges "Clos de Thorey" Premier Cru Monopole - 2012
is currently backordered. You may still purchase it now but we won't be able to ship it until it becomes available again.
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. Faithful to its origins in the Cistercian traditions that defined Burgundy, Vougeraie honors the inseparable bond of wine and Burgundy since time immemorial.
Nuits-Saint-Georges lies on a bed of Comblanchien marble, on the hillside at the base of the Combe de la Serrée, in the sediment cone of the Hautes-Côtes.
Subdued but very pure aromas of black fruits. Juicy, crunchy and intense in the mouth, with a salty complexity to the flavors of black raspberry and red licorice. Finishes very long, with fine-grained tannins and a sappy flavor of black cherry. This is Vincent's second vintage for this wine, which comes from vines that face southeast but also benefit from the cooling influence of the Combe de la Serrée.
