Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru

60 years old

The grapes come from the vineyards from the village of Vougeot in the north of the Côte de Nuits, between the village of Chambolle Musigny and Vosne Romanée. Soil : clay and limestone with shale. light slope. 100% pinot noir. Guyot pruning with different yearly works in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).

Harvest-picking by hand. The grapes are sorted twice (when picking the grapes and on the sorting table) then partially de-stemmed. (when needed, depending the quality of the berries a third sort is done with our optical machine), and put in stainless still thermo-regulated tanks. The alcoholic fermentation can begin with natural yeasts we have in the grape berries around 3 weeks. Pumping-over (the must) very soft in order to be very careful about the substance and order to get the purest and most representative wine we can have. Soft pressing.

The wine is put into the cask further to a soft settling of the juice in French oak (25% for new oak). The malolactic fermentation can begin then with natural anaerobic bacterium from the juice. The ageing lasts 18 months. We follow the lunar calendar for the bottling without fining and filtering. Clos de Vougeot is bottled during the "root” day.

Clos de Vougeot, deep red in colour, is harmonious, elegant and highlybred. Its bouquest is exceptionally intense (cherry, blackberry, violet, musk). In mouth, the wine is fleshy and long. A good balance beween mellowness and acidity and a considerable persistance.

Game, red meats, cheese.
