DOMAINE DE LA VOUGERAIE Clos du Roi, Corton 2015

This wine is sourced from Domaine de la Vougeraie’s 0.49 ha parcel of vines in the Clos du Roi Grand Cru vineyard on the slopes of the hill of Corton. The vines planted in the early 1950’s are anchored on calcareous pebbly soil with iron rich red clays and marl and perched on the steep mid-slope with an easterly aspect. After the grapes are harvested by hand most fruit is destalked and not crushed. The amount of whole bunch fermentation varies with vintage and a four-day cold pre-fermentation maceration takes place before fermentation begins naturally with indigenous yeasts. Following pressing, the wine is matured in 60% new oak from the forests of Allier, Nevers and Tronçais for 12-18 months depending on the vintage.

Winery DOMAINE DE LA VOUGERAIE

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 pulled together all of the various vineyard holdings which he had purchased over the years for his negociant business. The idea from the beginning was to create a no expenses spared domaine and Pascal Marchand - a native of Montreal who was the winemaker at Comte Armand at the time -  was employed to not only make the wines but to oversee the conversion of Vougeraie's then 36ha to organic and then to biodynamic cultivation.   Marchand left in 2005 and Pierre Vincent's approach was to make less extracted and less oaky wines than his predecessor. While Vincent left in 2016 to join Domaine Leflaive, the winemaking team of François Lécaillon and general director Sylvie Poillot, have continued Vincent's gentler handling of the fruit while at the same time reducing the use of oak even more with only 25% new wood for the Gran

With 46 hectares of vineyard across 35 different appellations, including six grand crus (Musigny, Bonnes Mares, Clos Vougeot, Charmes Chambertin, Mazoyères, Corton, Corton Charlemagne, Bienvenues Batard, Batard Montrachet and Chevalier Montrachet) this important and large domaine keeps going from strength to strength.
