Description

Starting in the XIIth century the Cistercian monks of Citeaux, owners of Clos Vougeot,

cultivated vines here. They built the winery with four oak presses and the large cellar with

capacity for 2000 barrels of wine. In the XVth century the "grand manoir" was built in the

middle of the Clos and in the XIXth century all the buildings were restored by Leonce

Bocquet. Clos Vougeot is the largest Grand Cru in Burgundy with 52 hectares of vines and

over 80 different owners. The Clos itself is subdivided into many different localities.

Food pairing

Game - rib-eye steak - roasted lamb - veal with morels - mature cheeses

Wine Enthusiast

Black-cherry hints on the shy nose of this wine seem compact, releasing in little bursts. The palate has an equally compressed body. It's well defined, rounded and elegant, luscious with ripe fruit. It dances on the tongue before bursting with freshness and aroma.

Very attractive aromas of dried earth, strawberries and some fresh flowers. Full-bodied and tight with chewy, polished tannins and a rich, powerful finish. Yet it always remains polished and beautiful. Lovely overall balance here.

Wine Spectator

This is a lean, sinewy red, whose firm tannins offset cherry, strawberry and floral flavors. It has a burly side to the linear profile, yet should come around nicely with time. Fine length. Best from 2025 through 2043. 260 cases made, 65 cases imported.
