Description

Starting in the XIIth century the Cistercian monks of Citeaux, owners of Clos Vougeot,
cultivated vines here. They built the winery with four oak presses and the large cellar with
capacity for 2000 barrels of wine. In the XVth century the "grand manoir" was built in the
middle of the Clos and in the XIXth century all the buildings were restored by Leonce
Bocquet. Clos Vougeot is the largest Grand Cru in Burgundy with 52 hectares of vines and
over 80 different owners. The Clos itself is subdivided into many different localities.
