Vougeot


Vougeot is a world famous village thanks to its Castle and the Knights Brotherhood of Tastevin which it shelters.
The Vouge is the river that gave its name to the village. It springs a few hundred meters above Vougeot to the west of the hillside and crosses the village to form a border between the Gallic tribes: eduens in the South, Lingons in the North, then between the bishopric of Langres and that of Autun. A hamlet settles around the ford and the toll bridge that is built at a place called La Charmotte (this bridge used to collect revenue on this shopping road). The village then becomes a stopping place. There are 7 inns and relays. Some buildings remain (the present hall was a stable).
In 1098, the Abbey of Cîteaux is founded a few kilometers. 12 years later, in Vougeot, the first vine, which will be the Clos Vougeot, is given to the abbey which will take 226 years to acquire and delimit the plot in its entirety. The Clos Vougeot now covers about 52 hectares, distributed between about 70 farmers from the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits. For them, exploiting part of this plot is a sign of renown. The other climates present on the village are Les Cras, the Perrière, the White Vine, Small Vougeot, the Village, distributed on 23 hectares. Only 3 winegrowers are present in Vougeot! The other farmers are distributed in the other villages of Côte de Nuits or Beaune.
