94-97 points


Domaine de la Vougeraie, based in Premeaux just south of Nuits St Georges, was created in 1999 when Jean-Claude Boisset of the Boisset group decided to group together all the vineyard holdings of his various negociant companies acquired over the years. The name comes from the significant holdings – and indeed Jean-Claude Boisset’s home – in the village of Vougeot. The winery is located however in the old Claudine Deschamps (Madame Jean-Claude Boisset) cellars in Prémeaux. The Domaine was put together from the various vineyard holdings which had accrued through the Boisset acquisitions of Burgundian houses over the years. Pascal Marchand was put in charge in 1999, with Bernard Zito in the vineyards, which were farmed biodynamically. Pascal produced powerful wines, fairly heavily extracted in his early vintages but clearly was subsequently moving to a softer approach by 2004.

With nearly 40 hectares of vineyard and over 30 different appellations, including six grand crus (Musigny, Bonnes Mares, Clos Vougeot, Charmes Chambertin, Mazoyères, Corton Clos du Roi, and Corton Charlemagne), this is one of Burgundy’s leading Domaines. This is always a benchmark Bonnes Mares because Vougeraie owns vines on the two, really very different, terroirs of this Grand Cru, the yin and yang of Bonnes Mares. This is wonderfully intense, really luscious, head-spinning, and compelling, and then the iron notes of the Terres rouges take over.

Inside Burgundy

100% whole bunch vinification. Pretty pink purple, with no special depth, and doesn’t need it. Another sublime bouquet coupling the floral with the purity of clean berry fruit. Leaner and tenser than the Charmes. With excellent fruit and acid balance, the whole bunch aspect remains an integral but not too overt part of the wine. Very long.
