Clos Vougeot (a.k.a. Clos de Vougeot) is a stone wall-enclosed Grand Cru vineyard within the Côte de Nuits in Burgundy, France. It is named for the Vouge River (really, more like a stream) that separates Chambolle-Musigny and the village of Vougeot. It was first planted by Cistercian monks in the 12th century, with completion of the vineyard in the 14th century. Since 1818 and the French Revolution, the vineyard has seen many landlords, and since the early 2000s, has been split between as many as 80 owners. Though the vineyards surrounding the Château at the top of the hill are considered the best and those toward the bottom more inferior, all parts of the enclosed area are considered part of the Grand Cru if produced under its AOC regulations. These Pinot Noir-based wines are known to be typically dense and robust when young and gain elegance and structure from cellar aging.
