The historic Domaine Bertagna once belonged to the Cistercian monks, famous for founding the Clos de Vougeot in the 13th century. The estate’s cellars and vineyards are still located in the heart of the village nearby the Château and its ancient Chapter House, but the winery is owned since 1985 by the world-renowned Reh family and managed by Eva Reh-Siddle. With 18 wonderfully diverse appellations across the region, 12 of which are Premier and Grand crus, Bertagna is among the top ranking Domaines in Burgundy. A desire for perfection and emphasis on quality, coupled with significant investments in technology and vineyard management, result in some of the region’s most compelling wines. Domaine Bertagna is perhaps best known for its elegant, silky red wines, but it also produces one of the world’s rarest white wines – Vougeot 1er Cru Blanc “Les Cras” from the Côtes de Nuits.

Production Area
Burgundy, France
Appellation: Vougeot Contrôlée

Grape Varieties
100% Chardonnay

Vinification
Rigorous pruning in the spring is followed by green harvest at veraison to limit yields. After sorting during picking, the grapes are sorted again at the winery before a whole cluster pneumatic pressing. The gross lees settle out, and the wine is drained directly into oak barrels (25% new) for alcoholic and malolactic fermentations. The wine ages for 12 to 15 months in barrel before bottling.

Bouquet
Aromas of candied fruit and honey with a buttered and mineral bouquet.

Taste
The wine is well-balanced and round in the mouth showing good density and superb freshness.

Alcohol
13%
