Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 2018
Soil and climate
Clay and limestone. The plot is located in the Clos, on the Vosne-Romanée side; it stretches from the bottom of the wall to the “Les Maupertuis” climate. Three types of soil compose it: first clay, then a mixture of fossils and earth and then pebbles mixed with earth.
Pinot noir fine type, qualitative rootstock 161-49.
Average age: 50 years, 10,000 plants / ha. Yield: 35 hl / ha
Sustainable and environmentally friendly.
Whole grapes sorted without SO2 with twice-daily punching down for 3 weeks. Alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts without artificial thermoregulation. Malolactic fermentation.
On lees, reductive aging without racking, with riddling without SO2 for 17 months.
Rich and structured; it is powerful, round and fresh. Its fruity notes (cherry, raspberry), liquorice and sandalwood give it great depth and breadth.
