Domaine de la Vougeraie Nuits-Saint-Georges les Damodes Premier Cru 2003

Member Review by Matt Walker:

If you grew up on California Pinots but are thinking of venturing into Burgundy (a good thought to have) Vougeraie is a great bridge wine. They're fairly new to the scene but are making quality wines that marry new world fruit the old world finesse. This wine overflows with cinnamon and clove with dark cherries and currants providing great fruit. Tannins make their presence known. My only real criticism is that I could have used a bit more acidity, but all in all a nice effort.

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

Tasting Notes:

"Very pure and polished, this red reveals a sweet core of black cherry, cassis and spice. It's pretty seamless now, despite a swath of finely grained tannins, ending with a long aftertaste of cassis. Drink now through 2018." 92 Points Wine Spectator
