The Domaine de La Vougeraie was created from the union of several estates acquired over the years together with the Boisset family’s first vineyards, all brought under a single banner as the symbol of a single philosophy: A certain idea of excellence. The Domaine de La Vougeraie was created in 1999, but its history goes back to 1964 and the family’s first vines, “Les Evocelles” at the north of Gevrey-Chambertin.
Les Evocelles was the Domaine’s first vineyard, acquired back in 1966, and is dear to their hearts. Its name derives from Les Brosselles, which meant a patch of scrubland. This climate is ideally located in the wildest, most unpretentious part of the village.
The vines are on a steep east-south-east slope, with just the right degree of calcareous soil, a dream plot.
