Domaine de la Vougeraie - Vougeot Premier Cru "Le Clos Blanc de Vougeot" Monopole - 2007
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.
The Clos Blanc, a mythical, mystical vineyard, is adjacent to the Château du Clos de Vougeot. This golden triangle, surrounded on all sides by great reds, first offered its pure, golden sacrament to its spiritual fathers, the first monks of Cîteaux, in 1110. Known as “The White Vineyard”, it is like a diamond set in the centre of rubies.
This is slightly more aromatically complex with its attractively fresh nose of nut oil, lemon, straw and pear. There is a lovely sense of underlying tension to the mineral-inflected medium-bodied flavors that display good cut on the very clean, refreshing and saline finish.
