Video: Château de Clos de Vougeot, Home of the Chevaliers du Tastevin

Guests who cruise aboard hotel barges L’Impressionniste and Finesse visit Clos de Vougeot, headquarters of the Chevaliers du Tastevin, for a tour of the iconic cellars. They then enjoy a private tasting of fine burgundies on the way home.

The Clos de Vougeot is one of the largest vineyards in Burgundy. The Château de Clos de Vougeot is a small château built to house the wine presses needed by the Cistercian monks to make wine for their religious ceremonies. The château is now the seat of Burgundy’s most sophisticated wine lovers, the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin. In Epineuil is the Petit Quincy Abbey, built in 1212 by the Cistercian order. In this magnificent setting, great Epineuil and Chablis wines are produced.
