Emblematic and majestic, Clos de Vougeot is the château you see when arriving on the Route des Grands Crus linking Dijon to Beaune. The worldwide renown of this building is based on the appellation of its plots. At the time, there was only one owner, the monks of Cîteaux. Today, 80 owners share the 50 hectares of vines that surround the walls of the Clos. In the 16th century, abbot Dom Jean XI Loisier added a Renaissance-style main building to the 12th-century winegrowing buildings built by the monks.
The château was saved from abandonment in the late 19th century by wine merchant Léonce Bocquet. A stroke of luck for this idyllic setting, where the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin now has its headquarters. It is here that the Chapitres take place, prestigious rituals bringing together wine lovers and professionals from all over the world.
