Founded in the 12th century by the abbey of Cîteaux, which will keep the property until 1789, the Clos de Vougeot is the very image of Burgundy. Its 50 hectares, still surrounded by its walls, are shared between more than 80 producers , thus offering a reduced vision of Burgundian fragmentation. Among the vineyards, we find the castle which houses the famous Brotherhood of the Knights of Tastevin.
Jean-Pierre and Yves Confuron-Cotetidot vinify here as usual, in whole bunches and taking the time for long vatting and maturing which is even more so, with very little new wood so as not to mask the subtleties of the terroir. .
The result is a racy, tannic and elegant wine , with fruit, freshness and a remarkable finish . It is all the spirit of Burgundy that you will find in this bottle. The guards here oscillate around 15 to 20 years depending on the vintage.
Grapes: Pinot Nero
