Dearroir of the Clos Vougeot appellation


The Clos de Vougeot, in the heart of the Côte des Nuits, occupies a large part of the vineyards of the commune of Vougeot. It refers to the sets of plots surrounded by small walls separating the village of Vougeot vineyards of Chambolle-Musigny. It is surely the most famous of the all closed of Burgundy. This appellation is also the only vineyard entitled to the Grand Cru de Bourgogne appellation. It produces red wines from the Pinot Noir grape variety.
The history of the Clos de Vougeot dates back to the time of the Cistercian monks of the Abbey of Cîteaux. The initial vocation of the rampart created in the 12th century was to protect the vines from illegal harvesters. But today, this wall jealously delimits the AOC vineyards classified Grands Crus. Until the French Revolution, this enclosure was considered a site of the monks. After the Revolution, the Ouvraud family bought it until 1889 when it was divided into small plots. And currently, there are more than 80 owners who operate this exceptional vineyard. The Château de Clos de Vougeot, meanwhile, is the seat of the Tastevin Conferia.
The quality of the wine terroir of this Grand Cru is quite diverse: the ploughable part of the soil is shallow and gravelly on a limestone base at an altitude of 255 m above the sea. At 250 m altitude, the clay soil is quite deep and on gentle slopes, at 240 m, the clay-marl soil is mixed with alluvium.
Due to the many winegrowers in the clos and the difference between the winemaking processes and the diversity of soils, the clos de Vougeot displays many different styles of wines. The best wines of the appellation have a very intense red color, an attractive bouquet of spring scents, violets, roses, ripe fruits with notes of wild mint, licorice, truffle. When tasting, they have a rich, delicate, exquisite flavor and incredible longevity. Their aging potential can reach more than 3 decades.
