The Divine Vougeot Cellar

The little village of Vougeot is in the ideal location for wine enthusiasts, on the Grand Crus Route between Chambolle-Musigny and Vosne-Romanée extending across the Côte de Nuits region. Nestled among vineyards, this little strip of houses is famous around the world for its magnificent and prestigious Château du Clos de Vougeot, built in the 12th century within the Cistercian architecture movement and listed as an official French historical monument since 1949.

Vougeot is a special place in Burgundy for local gastronomy and wine events and promotion, animated by a touch of folklore offered by the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin wine enthusiast fraternity. This setting is unique and renowned not only because of its history, but also its architecture and environment meaning it’s the ideal place to come discover and sample some rare great vintages in Christophe Jacquet’s cellar.

Christophe Jacquet

a devoted enthusiast

Christophe has dedicated his entire life to the world of wine, a passion in which he’s invested 30 years to gather a collection of around 10,000 bottles of rare wines from different places around the globe.

With his gourmet palate for grands crus, this devotee carefully and rigorously selects each bottle he purchases to present them to you. Each time he falls in love with one, he’s filled with great pleasure thinking about how your taste buds will be delighted with the notes and aromas of his discoveries.

Upon arriving at cellar “1 Bis”, a bubbly Christophe opens the door to serve and advise you on your purchases. The selections he makes ensures you’ll have an exalting tasting experience. And what’s more, he’ll guide you to choosing the bottle you’ve always wanted. His ultimate goal: to see your eyes sparkle, bewitch your nose and take your taste buds right through the vines with just one sip!

A rare cellar

Christophe’s cellar holds more than 10,000 bottles, 1500 of which are rare. The oldest date back to the early 1900s.  Quite varied in origin, they recount the many trips taken by your devout host all over France and the world to uncover these incredible hidden wonders.

Among its treasures, cellar “1 Bis” offers great Burgundy labels  (Roumier, Rousseau, Mortet, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Coche-Dury, Georges Noellat, Ramonet…), distinguished Rhônes (Guigal, Combier, Rayas, Chave…), and other big names of the likes of Grange des Pères, Clos Rougeard, Ganevat, in addition to all the great growths from Bordeaux (Pétrus, Mouton-Rotschild, Haut-Brion, Yquem…) as well as the most important foreign wines (Opus One, Egon Muller, Antinori…) . You’ll also find an exceptional collection of large formats from Magnum, Jéroboam and CBO.

The furnishings were designed to emphasize each bottle with the rack arrangements and discrete lighting reflecting off the stone walls. It’s a captivating atmosphere surrounded by the ideal conditions of humidity and temperature for optimal preservation and sampling.

A wise sommelier

 

Whether you wish to purchase a collection or make an investment in a quality product, your host will be able to advise you and create a balance between what you enjoy drinking or saving for a special moment and the vintages that can be added to an investment cellar.

For a few years now, Christophe’s daughter, Marjorie, has been handling transactions and the management of the cellar and its treasures as well in order to better serve you.
