Sylvie Poillot leads a team of 30 at Domaine de la Vougeraie, overseeing the organically farmed vineyards that run the length of the Cote d’Or. With such an enviable swathe of prized vineyards at her fingertips, it’s no wonder her team produces such vibrant gems as this. The fragrant, earthy bouquet leads right into a palate awash in red fruit. Red cherries mingle with crushed strawberries while an intriguing hint of black pepper arises from the background. Supple and silky on the entry, elegant on the finish, this should bring a good decade of drinking pleasure.

This old-vine monopole holding of 3ha is partly used for the domaine's excellent Terre de Famille blend, but it's good to see it get a solo billing too. Fermented with 50% whole bunches and aged in 20% new wood, this has good focus and zip, with subtle reduction and tangy red cherry and raspberry fruit.
