The appellation Vougeot has been recognized since 1936 as a controlled designation of origin. Its vineyard of barely 67 hectares extends in the heart of the Côte de Nuits, in Burgundy , in the commune of Vougeot , between Chambolle Musigny and Vosne Romanée.   The Vougeot appellation is synonymous with delicacy. Not far from 50 hectares are classified in Grand Cru, famous throughout the world: Le Clos de Vougeot . Of the remaining 17 hectares, nearly 13 hectares are classified as Premier Crus: Clos Blanc, Clos des Perrières, Les Cras, and Les Petits Vougeots.   The red wines are exclusively obtained from the Pinot Noir grape. They account for nearly 95% of the production of the AOC Vougeot. The rare white wines are from Chardonnay planted on plots of first growths such as the Clos Blanc and the Cras. Rare than famous.   The Vougeot red, close to the Grands Crus Clos de Vougeot and Musigny, and in particular Le Premier Cru Les Petits Vougeots shares substantially the same characteristics: Of a beautiful deep ruby ​​color, it develops floral notes of violets and small red and black fruits (Blackcurrant, morello cherry). It is also accompanied by notes of licorice, and after a few years of ageing, evolves towards notes of undergrowth and leather. It’s very handsome, but shows extreme delicacy.
