Description

Varietal: 100% Pinot Noir. The Vougeot vineyard has less than 15 hectares. Within the vineyard, the Les Petits Vougeots 1er Cru is cultivated in shallow, brown limestone soil. The name comes from the stream that runs along the bottom of the plot: Le Petit Vougeot. This stream eventually flows into the Vouge, a river that runs to Cîteaux abbey. 18 months in new oak barrels for 50%, the rest in barrels having contained one or two wines.

Taste: A direct wine with its own personality, it is pure and assertive and cuts no corners with its red berry flavors. It is a highly refined wine with substance and fruity flavors. The wine is Vosne-like in its supple, silky flavor and texture, and has more finesse than is often the case with wines from inside the famed Clos itself. Delicate tannins on the finish.
