Nuits-St-Georges, Côtes de Nuits, Bourgogne, France
Great drinking wines lifted into the higher echelons of quality.
Jean-Claude Boisset was a born entrepreneur and was trading in wines by the time he was 18 years old. In the early days the wines were considered of only modest quality more suited to the volume market, but the appointment of the highly talented Gregory Patriat as winemaker in 2002 (fromLeroy) has elevated the wines into a significant quality bracket. Domaine de la Vougeraie was part of the upsurge of quality - formed in 1999.
