History

Established in 1450, the domaine is owned today by Comtesse Claire de Causans and Marie de Ladoucette, descendants of the late Comte Georges, who died in 1987.

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé
Jean Moisson, ancestor to Comte Georges de Vogüé, first built the domaine in the 15th century along with the church of Chambolle-Musigny. The church still holds several artworks depicting members of the Moisson family today.

The Vogüé family’s name was first recorded in Burgundy in 1766, when Catherine Bouhier de Versalieu married Cerice François Melchior de Vogüé, originally from the Ardèche, where there is still a commune named Vogüé.

Impressively, the family have managed to maintain ownership of the domaine throughout its history, including the French Revolution of 1789 – sadly, many other domaines suffered greatly during this period and were unable to retain their estates.
In 1925, Comte Georges de Vogüé inherited the vineyards from his father, Comte Arthur de Vogüé and subsequently changed the domaine’s name. Today, Comte George’s granddaughters, Claire and Marie, represent the current owners after inheriting the vineyards from their mother (Comte George’s daughter) in 2002.

Claire and Marie co-manage the domaine and are supported by Commercial Director Jean-Luc Pépin, who joined the domaine in 1988, and Vineyard Manager Éric Bourgogne, who has been at the domaine since 1996. Jean Lupatelli is the Head Winemaker, taking over from François Millet in 2021.

The Vineyards

vineyards
Jean-Luc Pépin and Eric Bourgogne strongly believe in strict husbandry of the vineyards, including low yields as the key to quality and impeccable ingredients. They approach each vintage with fresh eyes, recognising each year is completely different to the next and not wanting to create a formulaic approach to their wines.

The team, therefore, remain quite open-minded about viticultural techniques used with each growing season and adapts accordingly. For example, de-stemming before maceration and fermentation, as well as the percentage of new oak used, the length of maturation before bottling and whether or not to rack or fine, are all variables. The fact that this flexibility extends to each cru is even more remarkable.

No matter what specific techniques are employed, the whole team is always united on one simple philosophy: the search for the purest translation of the vineyard.
