The appellation

Vougeot is best known for the highly reputed Clos de Vougeot, but there are a number of other outstanding climats in the remaining 16.5 hectares of appellation d’origine contrôlée. A mere pocket handkerchief, but one of silk and lace. These climats are only known to true passionates of Burgundy wine. Take Les Cras, for example. Do you know where to find it?
