Estate Notes

Dufouleur Frères’ Clos Vougeot is the archetypal Burgundian Grand Cru.

Acclaimed world-wide, these 50 walled hectares are the legacy of the Cistercian monks who planted the vines and built the château. A property of the family for almost a century now, the parcel worked by Maison Dufouleur Frères is located in the Les Grands Maupertuis, in the higher - therefore better quality - area of the clos. The vines, with an average of more than 40 years, produce small concentrated grapes rich in polyphenols, resulting in a powerful yet refined wine.

The Dufouleur family has a long history of winemaking in Burgundy and the family can be traced back to 1596 and the village of Nuits-Saint-Georges. The original family name fouleur literally means grape crusher (depicted on the label), and this manual trade was practiced until the end of the 19th century.

Reviews

Magnificent wine from the family’s holding in the best sector of the Clos, adjacent to Les Grands Echézeaux, showing intense blackcurrant, spice and violet aromas. Balanced, very powerful, deep and pure.
