The appellation

Like a family reunion, this wine brings together the members of one single line of descent, and one single Cistercian terroir. The varietal – Pinot Noir – has been grown here for almost 700 years. Most of the grapes comes from our vines on the Côte de Nuits, a few from the Côte de Beaune.

The aristocratic and sophisticated Pinot Noir grape gives the vines their blue blood, and is behind some of the most dazzling red wines ever made. Cited for the first time in 1375, the name has since then been inextricably linked to the history of Burgundy wine. The red wines made here from the Pinot Noir grape are the very the soul of their Burgundy birthplace. And it is here where they flourish best.

Situation: This is the Pinot Noir grape with all its ardor and delicacy, its vitality and sensitivity, its authenticity, thanks to these plots in Gilly-lès-Cîteaux, a stone’s throw from Le Clos de Vougeot and our Vougeot vines, combined with a touch of rusticity from the Côte de Beaune. It was in Vougeot that the Cistercian monks stored their wines, and Terres de Famille combines different plots to provide the flame of the sacred fire to the excellence of the Pinot Noir grape.
