Clos de Vougeot is the largest Grand Cru vineyard in the Côte de Nuits with over 50 hectares of vines and around 80 owners. The Clos has a

gentle 3-4 degree slope from top to bottom and is supported by three separate geologies with six different soil types that vary in depth and

drainage. Soils at the top are quite shallow, coarse-grained and have a high limestone content with good drainage. The middle section has a

fine brown calcareous soil of 45 cm average depth on limestone gravel with moderate drainage. At the bottom near the RN74 road the soils

are much deeper, have a high clay content with poor drainage. A blending of wines from these different parcels produces a complete, solid

wine capable of long ageing.


Wood spice and pungent earth notes add breadth to the ripe and largely red fruit-based nose. The big, powerful and concentrated

flavors possess plenty of sap that helps to buffer the mildly rustic and very firm tannic spine that shapes the driving and energetic

finish. This should be excellent in time but it will need plenty of it.
