Clos de Vougeot has a magic ring to it, despite the fact that many wines from this large vineyard are what one could call somewhat disappointing,
In the last 10-15 years quality has, however, improved notably and is often now more in line with expectations.
One of the most famous sections of the clos is the lieu-dit Musigni, which is located just below Musigny and above the Vougeot chateau,
The main part of Musigni is owned by the Gros family and is currently farmed by Gros Frère et Soeur. But from 2022, Domaine A.F. Gros will also have a part of this vineyard, as they will swap some vines with Gros Frère et Soeur.
