The Clergets own just under one-half a hectare of rarely seen Vougeot 1er Cru Les Petits Vougeots. The vines face east, next to the upper part of the Clos and below Les Musigny in the Chambolle AOC, next to the road leading to the Château du Clos de Vougeot. The soil is shallow brown limestone, and the vines are 42-43 years old. The wine is Vosne-like in its supple, silky flavor and texture, and has more finesse than is often the case with wines from inside the famed Clos itself.

Allen Meadows (Burghound): "The mouthfeel of the beautifully vibrant, sleek and tautly muscular medium weight flavors is attractively refined which is enhanced by a subtle minerality that arises on the firm, saline-inflected and balanced finale. This is sufficiently concentrated and firm to reward mid-term cellaring. (Jan 2019)"
