Based in Prémeaux, just south of Nuits-St Georges, Domaine de la Vougeraie was created in 1999 when Jean-Claude Boisset decided to group together all the vineyard holdings of the various négociant companies he had acquired over the years. Pascal Marchand was put in charge in 1999, with Bernard Zito in the vineyards, which are farmed biodynamically. Pascal produced powerful wines, fairly heavily extracted in his early vintages but clearly moving to a softer style by 2004. The wines came of age under Pierre Vincent, who maintained the more delicate approach. He departed after the 2016 vintage, leaving behind a crack team, led by the redoubtable Sylvie Poillot. Top-quality vineyards continue to be added, especially Grand Cru whites in recent vintages. Pierre Vincent may now be fully installed at Domaine Leflaive, but his legacy is still firmly in place here, with the team he left behind brilliantly stepping up to the mark.

The policy here is to give newly planted vines six or seven years before including their fruit in village level wines or above; this deluxe Bourgogne is a happy consequence. It’s a seamless blend of parcels from Volnay, Gevrey Evocelles, Clos de Thorey and the Hautes-Côtes de Nuits. Juicy and approachable, it’s not short of structure or complexity. Drink 2020-2024.
