Domaine de la Vougeraie has plots in six grand cru, eight premier cru and 11 village appellations. The grand cru plots are in Charmes-Chambertin, Bonnes Mares, Musigny, Clos de Vougeot, Corton le Clos de Roi and Corton Charlemagne. Domaine de la Vougeraie also has a monopole over the Vougeot premier cru climat Les Clos Blanc de Vougeot. This small site, which sits adjacent to Clos de Vougeot and is surrounded by Pinot Noir vineyards on all sides, makes some of the most sought-after white wines in Burgundy. It is planted with Chardonnay and very small amounts of Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc, atop soils of white clay and silt.
The domaine's Chardonnay grapes go through a soft press before being fermented in mostly neutral French oak barrels. The grand cru Corton-Charlemagne Le Charlemagne is typically aged in around 50 percent new oak, whereas wines at village level usually have a much lower percentage of new oak.
The Pinot Noir grapes are fermented with native yeasts and are then aged in French oak, usually for between 12 and 18 months. Once the wines have completed their barrel age they are softly pumped into stainless steel tanks where they are blended and allowed to rest. The wines are then bottled without filtration or fining.
