Geographical situation: Vougeot is located in the Côte de Nuits, between Chambolle-Musigny and Vosne-Romanée, some twenty kilometres to the south of Dijon. The Clos du Prieuré name recalls the Priory, which used to own this land. The enclosure wall stands to this day, a rare occurrence in Burgundy. Located in the climat known as Le Village, it is separated from the neighbouring vines by a small track to the west and a stream to the East, the Vouge, which gave its name to the village and to our Domaine. The southern edge is bounded by the road leading to the Château du Clos de Vougeot, home of the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin.
