Le Clos du Prieure

Chardonnay
Description

Though Vougeot is best known for the highly reputed Clos de Vougeot, the Premier Cru and Village appellations should not be forgotten. Connoisseurs yearn for this wine, from vineyards in such a fabled position. The Clos du Prieuré name recalls the Priory, which used to own these lands. The high walls of the Clos and the proximity of the Vogue ensure this parcel always reaches a good level of maturity.
