...roasted red meats, Szechuan pepper, burley tobacco, and cooked blackberry in a corpulent, muscular style of red Burgundy, with fine skeletal posture...finishes with grip and both animal spirits and animal flavors...

...surprisingly elegant with lovely aromatic purity to the very dense aromas of red and blue pinot fruit plus violet notes that complement the notably ripe, earthy and serious medium full-bodied flavors brimming with dry extract that renders the firm tannins almost invisible on the precisely detailed and hugely long finish...

Clos de Vougeot is a walled vineyard that dominates the tiny commune of Vougeot in Burgundy’s Nuits-St.-Georges. The 124-acre Grand Cru vineyard includes a historic chateau that in 1945 was purchased by the Confrerie des Chevaliers du Tastevin, an organization devoted to promoting the traditions of Burgundy and its wines. The impressive chateau is the organization’s headquarters. Clos de Vougeot was established as a vineyard by Cistercian monks in the 12th century, then sold off to private owners after the French Revolution. The vineyard is unusual for a Grand Cru in that it includes land that runs down to the main road. The soil is light limestone with sand. Principal landowners are Chateau de la Tour, with 13 acres; Meo-Camuzet, 7.5 acres; Rebourseau, 5.5 acres; Louis Jadot, 5.3 acres; and Leroy, 5 acres.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
