The Domaine de la Vougeraie was created by bringing together the Boisset family’s vineyards and other wine estates acquired over the years. The first of these goes back to 1964 with the first plot, Les Evocelles, in the village of Gevrey-Chambertin, which was bought by our father when he started out. More than 20 years later came a second phase, with the addition of more vineyards including our first foothold on the Côte de Beaune. In 1996, the vineyards which today make up the third of our estate on the Côte de Beaune were acquired.
Once again there is an abundance of earth character to the very deeply pitched and layered nose that blends notes of tobacco, humus, game and violet with those of a variety of dark berries. The powerful, serious and palate coating flavors possess very fine size, weight and concentration while exhibiting excellent length on the robust and dusty finish. This is potentially outstanding, but patience will be required. Jan 2021; Drink: 2031+; Issue: 81; Comments: Outstanding; Rating 90-93 Points; Allen Meadows; Burghound
