A white wine vineyard in the heart of the Pinot Noir kingdom of Vougeot is quite a rarity. Domaine de la Vougeraie owns all of this tiny 5-acre vineyard. The wine has a richness and purity of fruit, with apricot and hints of the tropics over a layer of sweet wood. A smooth, creamy texture adds to the allure of this delicious wine.
