Alongside the cellars of Domaine Doudet lies a very special 0.43 hectare parcel of land. Planted in the 1960's this walled plot ( the two triangular vineyards in the image above) is called Le Clos en Village. It is technically Savigny-les-Beaune Villages however the bureaucratic nightmare required to reclassify the wine is not worth the trouble for the paltry 1,800 bottles produced annually.
The domaine prefers to sell the wine as Bourgogne Vieille Vigne and we are one of only four people in the world to offer this special cuvee.

Normally a parcel this small would be blended with other Bourgogne but the quality of the fruit from the old vines is so special that the domaine bottles it separately.
Vinous. Fresh and vibrant with lots of citrus and mineral. Very zippy with considerable length extended by surprisingly high acidity for 2011. Delicious! This wine punches way above its weight. For me really good Villages quality Burgundy if not bordering on Premier Cru Savigny-les-Beaune in style and interest.
Only 10 cases left.
Forget what is on the label. This is seriously good white Burgundy at a low price - perfect for everyday drinking.
