Domaine de la Vougeraie was established in 1999 to bring together several extraordinary vineyards acquired over the years by the Boisset family; this union symbolized a new beginning for the vineyards inspired by a profound philosophy of excellence! Jean-Charles Boisset and his sister Nathalie chose to name this new winery after their parent’s house, La Vougeraie, as a nod to the domain’s large vineyard concentration in their hometown of Vougeot and as well as a tribute to their childhood roots and a challenge for the future. Convinced that sustainable practices are an essential part of making exceptional wines, the Boisset family chose to shift their farming practices of the new unified vineyards to biodynamic and organic farming. Since 2006, 100% of our vineyards are certified organic by Ecocert, although the majority had already received their certification several years before. Biodynamic practices are employed in all of our premier and grand cru vineyards. Read less

89-92 Points "(from vines on the Brochon side). 30% whole clusters. A high-toned red berry fruit nose that includes notes of raspberry and cranberry are liberally sprinkled with wet stone notes that introduce detailed, intense and lively middle weight flavors where more minerality can be found on the balanced, pure and harmonious finish. This is another really lovely villages and absolutely worth a look." Burghound.com, 1st Quarter, Issue 41, Allen Meadows 90 Points "The 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Evocelles is elegant, sleek and refined. It shows wonderful nuance and detail in its aromas and flavors, not to mention considerable class. The vines here are 45 years old. The percentage of whole clusters was 30% here and new oak was 40%. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2029." Wine Advocate , #194 May 2011, Antonio Galloni

A complex bouquet of red and black berries witha touch of leather. The palate presents a well-defined structure in the mouth with a certain mellowness and pronounced tannins.
