Vougeot is a wine appellation in the Burgundy region of France covering the commune of the same name. It gained appellation status in December 1936. Both still white wines and still red wines are permitted under this appellation. There are only four climats in this commune that qualify for Premier Cru status, namely Les Cras, Le Clos Blanc, Les Petits Vougeots and Clos de la Perriere.
White wines can be produced from wither Chardonnay or Pinot Blanc. Red wines can be made from Pinot Noir with small optional additions of Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc or Pinot Gris.
