Clos Vougeot

We often evocate in Burgundy: “the round cuvée” because it takes up all the types of soils that we can find on the appellation.

Presentation

The wine
This diversity of terroirs gives a rich and dense wine, much closer to the roundness and finesse of Vosne-Romanée than the powerful of the classic Clos-Vougeot from the north of the appellation.
The vintage
1286 bottles, 96 magnums and 6 jeroboams have been produced for the vintage 2016.
Situation
0.75 ha planted in 1948.
The plot of the estate is located in the southern part of the appellation, at the corner of the wall separating the Echézeaux and Clos-Vougeot.
Terroir
Its originality lies in the length of its rows - 200 meters - on three different soils:
- first a stony soil with an important limestone-clay ratio,
- then a soil with small stones and a high proportion of clay,
- finally a finer soil with clays and silts.
Vinification
Harvesting is manual with 30% whole clusters.
50% of new barrels were used for a period of 18 to 22 months.
