(from an exceptionally well positioned 1 ha parcel situated directly beneath Les Petits Musigny. Vougeraie also has another, much less well located .35 ha parcel close to the main road of RN 74 that was being declassified into a Vougeot 1er but for the first time in 2002 was incorporated into the final blend) Moderate wood spice and a pretty if serious mix of red berry, black pinot and plenty of earth influence can be found on the round, rich and very suave full-bodied flavors that possess ample volume and excellent underlying material though the finish is perhaps not quite as precise and delineated as the very best in the range. Still, this offers plenty of character and superb length plus it's less youthfully austere than most examples at this very early stage.

Massive, as far as red Burgundy goes, with a wall of intense red cherry, sweet oak, violet and black currant pastille. Underneath there's a firm structure of acidity and tannins. Needs at least five years, maybe 10, to really come together. 491 cases made.

About This Producer


The domaine was "officially" founded in 1999 when the Boisset family's 91 acres were united under one name. Their original vineyard holding, Les Evocelles, was purchased in 1964 by Jean-Claude Boisset. The family's 91 acres are in 30 appellations in the Cote d'Or, with the latest purchase being the 24-acre premier cru Blanc de Vougeot Monopole. Other vineyards of note include Bonnes Mares, Corton Charlemagne, and Clos de Vougeot. Pascal Marchand is the winemaker, and the purity of the Burgundian terroir is due to his diligence at preserving the natural farming and biodynamic techniques of generations past.
