During this exceptional period of self-isolation, fortunately we can still work in the vines, which continue to follow the rhythm of nature, oblivious to mankind’s confinement. As such, the whole team is outside, bent over the rows, since the fine spring weather means growth is getting off to a quick start. After pruning, which will […]
The handpicked bunches of Chardonnay grapes are slowly pressed at low pressure in whole bunches for around three hours. The must is then left to settle in a stainless-steel vat for between 12-24 hours depending on the year, in order to allow the heaviest lees to settle naturally at the bottom. This process is known […]

The Domaine de la Vougeraie was created in 1999 from a decision to regroup all the family’s vineyards in the area into a single entity.

Wine and Burgundy long ago formed an inseparable bond. Whether pagan or divine, the land and its wine here are united for the best and for always.
At the dawn of the third millennium, the Domaine de la Vougeraie was founded. A family affair, at once a boutique operation and one of the great names on both the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune.
The symbolic vintage of 1999 was the first to bear the new estate’s name on the label. An estate guided by the light over the vineyards and the light in its wines, true to the Cistercian spirit which hung over the first vintners, so long ago. The Domaine de La Vougeraie starts from the vine, continues in the cellar, and carries on far beyond in the pleasure of tasting.
Like each of us, our wines are whole entities; deep yet joyous, straightforward but complex, in a word: Authentic.
