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 a distinct coolness to the pretty, airy and high-toned aromas of mostly red currant, rose petal and soft spices. There is good volume to the generously proportioned yet reasonably precise flavors that flash a touch of minerality on the beautifully complex finish. This is a Bel Air with better volume than is typical for the vineyard and overall, this is really quite good.
