Clos Vougeot

Monks first planted vine in Clos de Vougeot in the 12th century. Nowadays, protected by a wall of stones, Clos de Vougeot is the largest grand cru area in Burgundy.

The vineyard of Clos de Vougeot is shared between 80 owners. It generates a lot of troubles for wine tasters as the average production per owner is a little bit more than 1,000 bottles !

Vougeot and Vougeot Premier Cru are the smallest appellations in Burgundy - excluding Clos de Vougeot - and sometimes provide very good value with both red and white wines.
